Frequent knee pain

Dear doctor, my dad is 55yrs old and he has frequent pain on his knee. Sometimes it is swelling. We approached some doctors and they preferred some medicines. But still twice or thrice in a month he got heavy knee pain. If he works continuously he didn't get knee pain. If he takes rest at home for two three days he feels the pain. If any specialist or physiotherapist in Chennai please give your contact information I'll bring my dad for consultation.

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).

Your dad might be going through the age related changes in the knee . so physiotherapy sessions can help him to relieve his pain as well as help to prevent further deterioration of the knee joint. Only , physical examination and history of having any injury or fall on the knee has to be ruled out to differentiate the diagnosis and treatment to be given accordingly. so you can visit some physiotherapist asap.
