Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

The knee pain is a deep tissue pain . Lignocaine gel is a surface anaesthetic. It numbs the skin for a short while . The effect remains only for 10-15 minutes . It will not help in the deep pain like knee pain.

I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
