I am 74 years old, and having pain on left knee for the past one year, possibly due to bones getting too close at knee. Suggest treatment.

Hi, its not bones getting closer but powerless ligaments are not holding them to a normal place. May be due to age/weight or both, local application of oils but basti for 8/16/30 days will add value, medicines n strengthening physiotherapy will serve purpose.
