    Suggest treatment for knee pain

Hi. I am 16 years old and my knee has been hurting since i was about 12 years old. Back then it was only hurting when it was touched, then it started just aching whenever i bent it, which started half a year ago. Then just this morning, i was walking around my house, and it just started hurting whenever i put weight on it. I am scared to do physical activity because i think i might injure it. I am 6 foot one inch and still growing, so could it just be my body getting used to my height as i am growing, or is it something serious i should be concerned about. I am very athletic, and do 3 sports, so my knee is very important to me. please write back

As mentioned in the history you are into sports every now and then did you develop any injury of the knee in any of the sports? Because if any injury occurred it needs to physically examined and an MRI knee is suggested to see if any soft tissue injury is happening.

For time being, until you meet up and orthopedist or take a call for MRI I would suggest you try knee muscle strengthening exercises and also reverse walking. Focus the exercises more over the knee muscles .

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
