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).

Hi. Many injections are available. They are either single shot 💉 or multiple shot 💉. Depending on which you choose the cost varies. Single shot ones are typically available for 10-20000. I think your ortho has given you the mid range one. I personally like the one sold by Lupin as it is imported and around 15000. Cheaper ones are made in India but I have not got that great results with them.
