Osteoarthritis knee with probably meniscus injury
I have studied your case.
This can be age related osteoarthritis knee with probably meniscus injury.
For osteoarthritis of your knee.
You need to take cartilage protecting medication like chondritin sulphate [glucosamine], that you need to take for couple of months.
If required MRI knee can be done and if there is severe destruction of menisci then arthroscopic shaving can be done.
Exercises will help to strengthen muscle and joint.
In lying flat supine on back – move your ankle up and down[plantar flexion dorsiflexion],keeping small towel below knee-press your patella[knee cap ] on towel and hold for 15 sec,lift your leg straight alternately [10-15 times].
Lying on your tummy- flex knee alternately, make knee rotation in flexion.
Sitting on chair- extend your legs alternately [hold in extension for 15 sec]
Do exercises only if you do not feel severe pain on movement.
VISCOSUPPLEMENTATION: Hyaluronic acid injections given into the joint (especially large joints like knee joint) in prescribed dosages will give good short term pain relief in arthritic joints ranging from 1-2 years.
Newer modalities for cartilage injury include autologous chondrocyte implantation[ ACI] which helps in treatment of cartilage destruction.
Till time continue your medication.
