Sore knee after exercises. No swelling or bruising. Advice?

Hi I have been doing a workout routine for a month now that involves jumps and squats and lunges and yesterday my left knee felt very sore. Up until today. I was still able to sit walk and squat but my knee hurts a lot when lunging on it. There s no swelling or bruising and it really only hurts when I lunge. What could this mean for my knee?

Hi there.

Thanks for writing in.

It is quite possible that you sprained your knee.Take an over the counter pain relief medication like acetaminophen or brufen after food. Apply pain relief gel like volini gel or diclofenac gel. Get some rest for 2 days. Avoid exercise for 2 days. Even after this period if youir knee condition doesn't improve, I would advise you to visit an orthopaedician.

Hope this helps.
