Knee pain around patella

Hi, i am a regular jogger and run around 7-8 kms 5 days a week and during weekend i play either soccer or cricket. From past few months i have been suffering from pain in my knee specially around patella in my right knee. Even sometimes i had problem climbing the stairs. This happens specially after weekend games. I did consult physiotherapist for few weeks and he recommended some knee exercise along with some vitamin c supplement. After few weeks it improved but pain didn't go away completely. As long as i walk it feels okay but the moment i start sprint or play soccer. Right after the game i feel the pain in my knee. I also consulted a orthopedic and he too suggested some vitamin supplement like mobikart-d or orthoboon I have stopped playing weekend games and also stopped jogging from past 3-4 months. I now only brisk walk for 10 km. But i am not getting rid of the pain. Any suggestion would be a great help. I badly want to get back to my earlier routine.

Hi there...I can understand your concern. From complains it looks like you could be suffering from cruciate ligaments tear or meniscus injury. If they injury is partial, then it can heal spontaneously with rest(about 2 to 6weeks). If they injury is severe then surgery might be required. Kindly consult nearby orthopedic for further evaluation.
