Sore muscles, pain in left knee while squatting, climbing or descending stairs. Causes?

Hi, I have a desk job and for the last 2 days or so have been experiencing a sore/stretched muscle pain in my left knee , only when sitting Indian style. It isn t painful to walk up or downstairs, only if my knee is turned sideways. Can you tell me if I ve possibly been sitting in that position for too long, or could it be more serious?

Hello dear,

The symptoms can be attributed to:
1. Osteoarthritis
2. Muscle spasm
3. Injury to the soft tissues in the knee joint.

Investigation like X ray & MRI of the knee joint will be helpful in detecting the pathological cause for the symptoms.

Symptomatic relief can be obtained with ice application, intake of anti inflammatory preparations like Ibuprofen, & application of analgesic+muscle relaxant gel.
Physiotherapy exercises will also be helpful.
If symptoms still persist, kindly consult an Orthopedician for proper clinical examination.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
