Pain in right knee
Hi Doc, I was running today and suddenly got pain in my right knee, just at right side of knee cap. I checked my shoes if something is wrong and couldn't find any as they are the ones I am using from 6 months.

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.

Its a case of runner's knee. Happens when the knee takes load without adequate warm up.
Next Steps
Apply ice as of now. Visit a good physiotherapist asap.

Hello, did you twist your knee while running? Is the knee clicking, locking or giving way? Has it suddenly swollen up and filled with fluid? If no to above, what you have mentioned above sounds like a little bit of patellofemoral malalignment. Some quadriceps strengthening exercies will help to improve this. If not better/ or more concerned- please see an orthopaedic surgeon locally. Dr M Vashishtha FRCS, www.dr-mv.com
