I have knee pain from the past 3 months. It is bearable but can't stand for long and while climbing steps having pain. Took MRI and they told like there was a small tear in ligaments of both knees.
I have to go only for operation or is there any other remedies without operation.
Thanks in advance

Avoid sitting Cross legged.
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).
You have mentioned pain in both legs. You have not specified about which ligament has injuries on MRI. Was there an injury? It is required to rule out inflammatory and metabolic causes if there was no injury. Some ligament injuries can be treated non operatively, others may require surgery to prevent instability or arthritis. The information you have provided is inadequate. Please discuss in detail with your Orthopaedic surgeon.
Hello there, yes definately if its a grade 1 or 2 tear it can be very well managed without surgery..... you need to strentghn the muscles around your knee joint....A Physio with clinical expertise will help you in that also you need to wear a knee brace or at least a knee cap (proper fitting) to have stabilty in your joint while being outdoor.
During the healing stage dont do any sports or workout (apart from prescribed exercises)and avoid unnecessary stair climbing.
Have a proper and nitritious diet.
Regards & take care.
Grade 1& 2 dont need surgeries it can be treated by conservative method like strength
Your quadriceps ,hemistring muscles
Avoid crook sittng ,squatng,running,climbng stairs . Wear proper knee support while u r
Doing any activity
The need of surgery will depend upon the grade of ligament tear. Grade 1 and 2 can be treated by conservative methods but you will need a external knee support like a brace and knee exercises to maintain and improve the muscle strength and balance.
Start with static quads and hams, ankle toe movements. for progression of exercises, visit a physiotherapist.
