Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Based on the injury and the painful movements you have I suspect you to have a Ligament injury in the knee joint.

I suggest you to consult an Orthopedician who can examine your knee and ascertain the exact ligament involved and advice specific treatment.

Meanwhile do apply a CREPE bandage over the affected joint and apply painkiller like DICLOFENAC gel twice daily without massaging the affected part.

Hope I answered your query.

Please do let me know if there are any other concerns.

Regards,

2years after tkr, have burning, stiffness after standing in one place for a few minutes, pressure behind knee, actually pressure discomfort in back of leg from thigh to calf. The stiffness after standing for just a short time is what really bothers me. Went through usual therapy and achieved excellent flexibility. Sorry, don t know exact number. Still ride my recumbent bike, walk every day. Within 10 minutes of walking, knee starts to burn. Also am not really steady on my feet anymore because of the difference of leg length. I have neuropathy, but not severe, and wonder if that might cause some of the burning.
