Operation or no operation will depend on ur physical activities. Pain will surely subside with therapy and proper strengthening will give ur knee stability too but heavy activity will be hampered like running cross leg sitting etc. Take a proper research and thoughts before making decision. U can consult us on skype too visit www.physiotherapistdelhi.in

Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold).
