Suffering from knee pain. 4 years ago i twisted my knee.

Im suffering from knee pain , about 4 years ago i twisted my left knee when playing football and ever since then its never really been the same. It hurts when walking up and down stairs, hurts when im sitting with my knee bent and when kneeling or squating down also it feels stiff most of the time. I carry on playing football through the pain although it fades away eventually during a game. recently my hip or groin has started to hurt aswell, i dont know if this is linked because i never felt a pull or strain straight away. it may also be from overuse because im a personal trainer!! Do you have any idea what it could be and how to treat it? Thanks

It is a tear of tendon and called for proper traetment and rest which you missed both. amongst herbal treatments we have janu vasti in which medicated and slightly heated oil is kept over knee for about half an hour daily minimum for ten to fifteen days. Internally have ashwagandha , shilajit and triodasahng guggul.

Hi, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
You haveNOT mentioned your age. It seems that you had some ligamentous or tendon tear/injury 4 years back, for which you didnot take proper care & it has not still healed completely. Also you should know that tendons & ligaments have poor blood supply & heal poorly. Due to continuous activity, you might have developed post-traumatic osteo-arthritis of knee. I advice you to consult an orthopaedic specialist ASAP. Good luck.
