Hello,my name is dr Dorina Gurabardhi.Some treatment for knee pain
due to injury are:
-Rest and protect an injured or sore area. Stop, change, or take a break from any activity that may be causing your pain or soreness. When resting, place a small pillow under your knee.
-Ice will reduce pain and swelling. Apply ice or cold packs immediately to prevent or minimize swelling. Apply the ice or cold pack for 10 to 20 minutes, 3 or more times a day.
-Compression, or wrapping the injured or sore area with an elastic bandage
(such as an Ace wrap), will help decrease swelling.
-Elevate the injured or sore area on pillows while applying ice and anytime you are sitting or lying down. Try to keep the area at or above the level of your heart to help minimize swelling.
-Gently massage or rub the area to relieve pain and encourage blood flow. Do not massage the injured area if it causes pain.
-Medicine you can buy without a prescriptionAcetaminophen
, such as Tylenol
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs):Ibuprofen
, such as Advil or MotrinNaproxen
, such as Aleve or Naprosyn
Contact a general physician if it doesnt get better.Hope my answer helped you,thanks !
