Hello,

I have studied your case.

As per your age and history there is possibility of soft tissue injury in knee.
Most commonly meniscus injury occurs.
And MRI may help .Also diagnostic arthroscopy can help and cure the problem.

As per your symptoms you need to do physiotherapy and knee exercises to improve range of motion .

Small meniscus tear can be managed conservatively with physiotherapy with USG and TENS.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care
