Pain between knee and ankle
Hi, Currently my mother is under treatment for knee pains. Doctor said that there is no need of surgery by seeing X-ray. So,  he prescribed medicine and physiotherapy. After doing these things the situation is even worse. She is not able to go to wash room even with support. Can you please suggest the treatment for this problem? Thank you!

The information that I can gather from what you have mentioned is that your mother probably has osteoarthritis of the knee joints, and since it was not advanced enough, the doctor prescribed medicine and exercises, the possibility is that she may not be doing her exercises properly, also see if she is following instructions of the doctor, and taking medicines regularly and correctly, If her condition show no improvement kindly consult your doctor again and get examined, so that any thing other then osteoarthritis can be ruled out.
