You have to go for present day X-rays to rule out osteoarthritis. A MRI scan will diagnose ligament tears such as menisci tears or any associated cruciate or collateral ligament tears.

You would need a surgical correction for unrecovered and unrepaired old ligament injuries not responding to conservative treatment.

Follow up with an orthopedician.

For severe osteoarthritis you would need total knee replacement surgery.

Take care!
