Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi.
Your knee pain
could be due to certain reasons but common ones are chondromalacia, pain
due to knee instability, inflammation etc. If there is no history of any injury, and no s/s of inflammation or infection
, skin redness or local warmth on touching, then I will like to advise you for conservative management initially in form of:
- intensive physical therapy with focus on strengthening of quadriceps and stretching of other group of muscles
- gentle anti inflammatory medications like tab etoshine
or tab paracetamol
can be taken in small doses for 5-7 days
- adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation as per requirement
- ice packs at home for 3-4 times in a day
and see how it goes for around 2 weeks time.
If your condition does not improve, then we will have to get certain investigations done. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
