I am 50 years old male. I have pain on my right leg knee for the last one month. Local doctor prescribed some tablets (pain killers) but no use .then I went to digital XRAY. As per Doctor's impression, there is no significant abnormality noted. Still I have light pain on my knee when I walk. What should I do further more?

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- 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. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

There may be some degenerative changes which occurs due to aging. Or there may be some history of injury to the affected joint which causes injury to the soft tissue at that area. Mri of the joint may reveal the cause and then medicine should be taken according to diagnosis. Give proper rest to the joint. Massage with lukewarm oil and do exercise of affected joint. Take calcium rich joint. Share the report of mri for homeopathic treatment.
