Hello doctor,

What can I do for knee pain and lose joints and repetitive sprained ankles and hip tightness? I am a 15-year-old girl, and I have major knee pain that comes and goes. It is always swollen.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I would advise you to start strengthening your muscles by doing simple stability exercises and slowly progress to weight training. Have an adequately supervised session for a while to avoid any compensation of movements. Once muscles get stronger, you will get good support for the joints and may prevent pain and inflammation. Kindly get checked if you have any other parameter that causes joint issues like raised uric acid levels calcium levels. You may take medications if there is anything of that sort, by consulting a general physician. I hope this is helpful to you.
