Brief Answer: Physiotherapy and Life style modifications Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX You might be suffering from patellar tendinitis or chondromalacia patellae, which causes pain in your knee when you try to climb the stairs. This type of knee pain related to overuse or physical activity. Generally physiotherapy for your quadriceps muscle with straight leg raising and knee mobilisation will improve your muscle strength and will decrease the progression of pain. Life style modifications like avoiding stairs, squatting, sitting cross legged will also help in reducing your symptoms. Reducing weight is of prime importance if you are overweight. If the pain is severe, you can take ibuprofen 1 tab as and when required after meals to relieve pain and inflammation. Hope this helps you. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
