Advice... 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).

Severe pain gives rise to limping as a person cannot take weight on a painful limb.... Severe knee pain could be because of many reasons.... Osteoarthritis,ligament injury, bursitis, meniscus injury.... If it is a sudden kind of pain... It could be some injury without any external trauma... Which we call as degenerative tear.... Visit an orthopaedic consultant near your area at the earliest...

knee pain associated with limping can occur by several causes commonly acute flare up osteoarthritis,knee sprain, gout in old age people. you need to consult senior physiotherapist specialized in orthopedics or orthopedic surgeon not general physician. solution lies in evaluation of knee with an xray and some blood tests if required. may require knee support and some pain medication. dont delay ..consult nearby physiotherapist.
