Brief Answer: She may be suffering from infrapatellar bursitis Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case. As per history she may be suffering from infrapatellar bursitis which is common due to kneeling down position for longer time. She needs clinical examination from orthopaedic surgeon. If she was my patient I would have advised her rest, analgesic and anti-inflammatory, ice fomentation. If all these do not relieve pain then local injection can be given. Surgery is last modality if required. Physiotherapy with USG [ultrasound] and TENS may help to reduce swelling. Hope this answers your query.
