Knee injury, suspicion of knee alignment, tight hips. Natural remedy?

In the beginning of January I injured my right knee while deadlifting. I continued to work out for the rest of the month, didn t change at all. I ve since taken about 2 months off from exercising my lower body. I finally went in to get it checked. The DR sent me for an MRI and said that nothing is broken/torn. He did not really give me a straight answer as to what it is, but suggested therapy . The only thing that he did say is that it could be my knee alignment or tight hips. Does this make sense? The therapy place is a disaster so I want to know if there is anything I can do on my own to help it.

Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query.Your problem is most likely a meniscal tear or ligament damage.A physical examination by Orthopedician is necessary to rule out your condition.MRI should also be seen by Orthopedician.If it is that then Physiotherapy and quadriceps strengthening exercise can be tried. Analgesics can be taken also.If no improvement then arthroscopic repair is advised.Hope this may help you.Let me know if you have any further query.
