Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

There are numerous causes and conditions that produce pain in the knee joint. One of the commonest conditions that affects your age people is Patello-femoral arthritis (wear & tear in the cartilage of the kneecap & thigh bone)

A detailed clinical examination & a few investigations are needed to establish a correct diagnosis of your problem.

The general recommendations for Anterior knee pain are as follows -

- Avoid any activities that increase the pain such as climbing stairs and deep knee bending movements.
- Use over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen as & when needed
- Weight loss alone will often fix the problem if you are substantially overweight.
- Specific exercises can strengthen the muscles that support your knees and control limb alignment, such as your quadriceps, hamstrings and the muscles around your hips.

I suggest you to consult an orthopedic surgeon for further management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
