Hi doctor,

I am a runner, and I am facing knee pain on my left leg since the last two months. I consulted an orthopedician and got an MRI as well, but there is nothing abnormal. But, I still have pain. I am a diabetic and on medicine for that alone. I have attached the MRI reports for reference.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You have sprain or strain on your knee and is also demonstrated by the MRI (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
  • What did you take for pain relief? Are you wearing a brace? Did you do any physical therapy?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

You would need the following. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take treatment with consent.

  • Ibuprofen up to 400 mg three times a day with food for two weeks, if your liver and kidney function tests are normal.
  • A knee brace to support your medial and lateral meniscus and wear it for four weeks at least 12 hrs a day.
  • Prefer exercises that do not have high degree impact on your knees. Please get physical therapy to strengthen your quads further.
  • Do not put too much pressure on your knees and if possible minimize the running duration or sessions by half for a month.
