Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I just read your query. Take capsule Shallaki and give two tablets two times a day with water after food for ten days. Along with that visit a nearby Panchkarma center and ask for the procedure Janu Basti. It is also helpful in this problem.

Consult a nearby Ayurveda physician after ten days regarding improvement and for further management. I hope you understand my point. For more queries, you can consult me at icliniq.


The Probable causes:

Age-related changes.

Investigations to be done:

X-ray knee if needed.
