Thanks for posting your query.

Your knee pain seems to be due to muscle spasm.

Do not worry, do muscle stretching and strengthening exercises to relieve the spasm and pain and strengthen the muscle around the knee.

Doing hot fomatation and applying muscle relaxant gel will be helpful.

You can take ibuprofen to reduce pain and inflammation.

Hope this will helps you. Let me know if you have any more concern.
Please accept my answer if you have no further query.

Wishing you speedy recovery.
