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).

Please can you upload knee xrays? Are you overweight? One can mobilise with less invasive treatment if arthritis is not severe. This involves physiotherapy for quadriceps strengthening, sometimes a knee steroid injection if required. However, if arthritis is severe, you may need a TKR. Dr M Vashishtha FRCS
