how do i treat a sore knee?

Post by rockchick_82808 »

my knee has been sore since st. pattys day. i never before had issues like this. after that nite it was swollen. today the pain has gone down but the tension is still there. i noticed after i work out the pain goes away. its just odd to me. any one out there have any tips for this? keep in mind now, its not swollen or in severe pain, just enough to say HEY! I'm still here in case u forgot.

Try a knee support and maybe an ibuprofen or ketoprofen gel and see if those help.

I'd suggest things like icing, but I think it's not that severe according to what you say.

Ice is a really good idea after activity. You could also do some rehabilitation to yourself by doing some wall squats 2-3 times a week to strengthen the supporting muscles around your knees - this is usually the cause of knee pain.

Have you done wall squats before?
