I am suffering from pain in both legs right legs have more pain than left. please help me.
The treatment plan cannot be tailored from such information. You have to provide more insight in order to get proper treatment. Also provide x-rays or MRI if you have which would be more useful. Or else visit near by orthopedic (spine surgeon) or physiotherapist so that certain clinical tests can be performed and proper diagnosis can be made and according to that treatment protocol can be set which might help you to relieve your pain.

Runner's Knee - 7 Ways To help You Treat It!

If you are thinking that runner’s knee pain can ony happen to runners or sportsmen, then you are wrong. It can happen to anyone who spends time in doing things that involve bending the knees. It can happen due to activities like walking, biking and jumping. It refers to an aching pain around the kneecap. In medical terms, it is also called patellofemoral pain syndrome.

It doesn’t refer to a particular injury. It is an umbrella term to refer to any pain that happens during knee problems. Here are some of the reasons responsible for runner’s kneecap:

  1. High stress exercises, such as lunges or plyometrics
  2. Direct hit in the knee.
  3. If any of the bones are out of their correct position.
  4. Hypermobile feet and fallen arches or overpronation can cause joint pain as they change the way you walk.
  5. Weak or unbalanced thigh muscles.

What Are the Symptoms of runner's knee?

  1. You can feel the pain in front, behind, or around the kneecap
  2. Pain is felt when you walk, squat, kneel, run, or get up from a chair
  3. Pain is felt when you walk downstairs
  4. Swelling around your knee or a grinding feeling inside the joint

Diagnosis:
It can be diagnosed through physical examination and might require X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans.

What's the treatment for runner's knee?

  1. In most cases, runner’s knee gets better with time. However, the cause of the pain must be identified and then the treatment is done. Here’s what can be done:
  2. Give rest to your knees. It is best to avoid activities that cause the pain.
  3. Apply ice pack on the knees to ease the swelling. Repeat this after every 3 to 4 hours in a day and apply the pack for at least 20 minutes.
  4. Use an elastic bandage or straps to wrap the knees. It gives extra support to the knees and prevents the pain.
  5. Elevate the leg on a pillow at the time of lying down.
  6. Take pain killers like ibuprofen or naproxen.
  7. Indulge yourself in stretching exercises.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
