Knee Aching
Some days ago my mom sprained her knee while climbing down a flight of stairs. She wasn't able to walk properly. We showed it to a doctor who gave her traction for 15 mins and some lep. She felt a little better and applied lep again the next day. But ahe still wasn't feeling well,so we consulted a general physician who gave medicines. After taking 2-3 doses of medicines she was feeling great, no problem, was able to walk properly. But today again while climbing up stairs she sprained her knee and now she's in pain when she sits or folds her leg. While walking is not that painful but she can't fold her leg as it's paining a lot. What should we do?

There could be an injury to the cartilage discs (meniscus) inside the knee. You will need an MRI of the knee
