I advise you to take ayurvedic treatment for knee pain if she has not taken earlier. Vata imbalance is the cause of joint pain according to ayurveda. U should take tablet joddaram one tablet three times daily. Tablet mahayograj guggul one tablet three times daily. Apply mahamash oil on knees. U can msg me in my consult if you have any concern.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Also start with quadriceps drill for which you can meet a physio. I think the doctor is talking about your cartilage not ligaments.

You can check simple tsh blood test for thyroid. Do some knee exercises. Avoid prolong standing and sitting. For short time you can take any anti inflammatory and analgesic. Otherwise you can consult me.

This could be due to oa knee &/or obesity. Physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Do knee exercises. It may have to be further investigated rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it. Any way take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

Knee Ligament laxity if you have problem in your legs then it might be due to ligament laxity where your legs would become very weak due to the old ligament injury and that should be treated immediately. Wear knee cap so that you will feel firm while walking or climbing stairs. This is a general strain and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try! One time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain. You have to do knee strengthening exercises, ie. Knee rehabilitation exercises which will strengthen your knee. Exercises will give you permanent cure than the surgery. Physiotherapy Management: You can take Ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics which would help to heal the damaged cartilages along with shortwave diathermy which would help to improve the blood circulation. Simple Knee ExerciesSpecific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knees.

Dr. I am 67 years old and having knee pain in my left leg since last 6 months or so. The intensity is not that great. With knee caps on I go for brisk walk regularly in morning and evening. I walk about 3-4 kms daily. I have no sugar or BP problem. Sometimes right knee also pains but occasionally. Kindly suggest some medicine.

Hi lybrate-user. This pain might be due to wear and tear in your knee cartilage which is osteoarthritis. It is the most common problem in elderly age. Walking is fine but if you have pain stop. I would suggest to do cycling which is a better form of exercise in OA knees. Do not squat or sit cross legged and also climbing stairs to minimal. Pain killer you can take for few days etorocoxib 60 mg twice a day for may be 5-7 days. Take an antacid with it. Also get your knee xray done to see what stage is your osteoarthritis. I hope this helps you.
