Suggest Treatment For Knee Pain
Advice to undergo Xray/MRI of knee
Thank you for trusting HCM
The pain you are experiencing can be due to arthritis or injury to the knee joint like meniscal/ligament tear.
Sometimes, both injury and arthritis can be co-existent too. An injury is highly likely if you play sports or exercise. However, sometimes injuries can exist without any particular history of trauma.
Physical examination can give an idea into whether an underlying injury is present r not.
Xray of the knee joint can confirm/rule out the presence of arthritis. However, any ligament/meniscal tear will not be picked up on Xray and require MRI evaluation.
Please be advised to follow up with your primary provider to undergo necessary evaluation.
Meanwhile, you can take Advil 600 mg 4 times a day to relieve pain. You can also use knee braces to stabilize and support the knee joint.
