By your description , it appears to be osteoarthritis, meaning age related wear and tear. basic management is by exercises, weight control, medication, and physiotherapy. Since these are not very effective in your case , kindly get x ray of knees done - AP (standing), Lateral and skyline views. Kindly review with me in my clinic at Punjabi Bagh with these x rays for assessment of the range of motion, ligament strength, etc. for further management

Hello by the way you mention I think it is osteoarthritis I would suggest you to consultant orthopedician as we need to get an xray done and grade it... if it's in the initial stages then you can go for Physiotherapy as it will definitely help and avoid any strain as in walking up the stairs, keeping your legs folded or sitting down on the floor...Thank you... do not go for any excessive massaging of the knee joints thank you
