Any information or exercises to help would be great . The pain is almost debilitating and I currently only take Alieve every other day .
The knee joint has avulsion fracture and it can cause pain. Rest the joints if possible till the acute inflammation subsides. Avoid those movements or exercises that aggravate your pain. Try not to lift weights or bend as this can worsen your symptoms. Try applying local analgesic creams. Place ice over the painful area every 1-2 hrs for pain relief. Sleep on a firm surface with a pillow under the knees and take OTC pain medications like Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen. Ensure to take them after food.
