Self-Help Tips & Home Remedy For Your Knee
Knee pain is often caused by injury or arthritis. The most common symptoms include swelling, stiffness, tenderness, and a limited range of motion. If left untreated, these symptoms can cause long-term damage to the joint.

- I.C.E. (Rest, Ice, Compress & Elevate)
- Rest: Avoid all aggravating activities (don’t do anything the hursts)
- Ice: Icing your injured knee helps decrease swelling and speed recovery. Ice the injured or painful knee for 15 minutes every 2-3 hours, don’t forget to warp the icepack with a cloth.

Knee Pain Treatment Through Injections
Hyaluronic acid injections: Viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid injections are all too common of a knee treatment procedure provided by an orthopedic surgeon. Hyaluronic acid is a Jell-like substance that surgeons inject directly into joints and around the affected joint to reduce inflammation with some lubrication.
- Corticosteroid injections: Corticosteroids relieve inflammation by reducing the swelling that causes pressure on nerves or surrounding tissues. We strongly oppose steroid injection of the knees because a recently published study in the Journal Of Radiology related that they harm you more than most doctors know.
- PRP and stem cell injections: PRP injections use your blood after it has gone through centrifuging to concentrate platelets in plasma while eliminating white and red blood cells from the mixture. The concentrated PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is injected into your joint. Platelets contain stem cells that perform a similar function by attracting growth factors to the area. They relieve pain too! PRP and stem cell injections are an option for a fresh knee injury. However, they are unsuitable for chronic knee pain or disorders resulting from wear and tear or degenerative changes.
What Are The Typical Knee-Related Conditions In Malaysia?
Knee pain has many causes, all of which are treatable and recoverable without invasive procedures. We have listed some of the most common reasons for knee pain here:
- Knee bursitis or housemaid’s knee
- Patellar tendonitis
- Runner’s Knee or Patellofemoral pain syndrome
- Baker’s cysts (popliteal cyst)
- Osteoarthritis (bone spurs, degenerative, or arthritic knee pain)
- Valgus & Varus knee or leg deformities: Geno valgus (knocked knees) & Genu Varus (Bowed legged)
- Referred pain to the knee (often due to compressed spinal nerves or hip issues)
- Meniscus damage & meniscal deformities such as a discoid meniscus
- ITB pain (Iliotibial band syndrome)
- Osgood-Schlatter Disease
- Anterior Cruciate Ligament tears (ACL tears)
- Posterior Cruciate Ligament tears (PCL.)
- Tear of the medical or lateral collateral ligaments
- Meniscal tears or rips (medial meniscus tears or tears of the lateral meniscus)
A bursa is a small fluid-filled sac containing synovial fluid to protect friction between two surfaces. Bursa is found all over the body. About fifteen bursae (plural for bursa) are around the knee joint. However, five main bursae that get inflamed or injured are:
- Prepatellar bursa
- Infrapatellar bursa
- Pes Anserine Bursa
- Semimembranosus bursa
- Suprapatellar bursa
Knee bursitis is a painful condition caused by inflammation of the fluid sacs (bursae) found between the muscles and bones of the knee joint. The pain usually occurs after prolonged sitting or standing, especially in cold weather.
Prepatellar bursitis is the most common of all knee bursitis. The Knee bursa is located at the front of the knee joint (prepatellar bursa) and sets directly below the skin, protecting and cushioning the knee cap. When the knee is bent or if you kneel a lot, pressure builds up inside the bursa causing swelling and pain.
While knee bursitis may occur due to overuse and misalignment, it can also be caused by injury. Injuries such as sprains, strains, tears, fractures, and dislocations can cause bursitis. However, knee bursitis often occurs after repetitive motion, especially if the area is not adequately warmed up before activity begins. If you suspect bursitis as the cause of your knee pain, get in touch with us; we can help fix the root cause and eliminate the pain caused by your knee pain fast.
Patellar tendonitis is a painful condition affecting the kneecap. The patella (kneecap) rubs against the femur during knee flexion causing pain and inflammation. This is often caused by overuse or repetitive strain injuries.
Patellar tendon injury usually occurs after prolonged kneeling or squatting activities. These activities put excessive stress on the quadriceps muscles and tendons.
There are several treatment options for patellar tendonitis at CSC. We have treated thousands of patients with patellar tendonitis, and none required injections or surgery.
Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a common knee condition affecting millions. The knee pain associated with knee OA limits mobility and causes stiffness, discomfort, and knee aches with daily activities.
Knee OA results from premature wear and tear of the cartilage and joints of the knee. Knee joint inflammation and swelling of the knees are common findings and primary causative factors in developing stiffness or related knee symptoms.
There are several types of knee OA, such as primary or secondary OA. Primary knee OA occurs without another underlying disease. Secondary knee OA is caused by other conditions, such as injury, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, or diabetes.
Although knee OA has no cure, some treatments can relieve symptoms and slow progression. CSC provides the most comprehensive and holistic knee pain treatment for knee osteoarthritis in Malaysia; contact us today.
Knee Pain Treatment For Torn Meniscus
A torn meniscus is a type of injury to the cartilage inside the knee joint. The meniscus is a cushion between the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shinbone). When the meniscus tears, the two bones rub together, causing pain and swelling.
Meniscal injuries often occur in young adults who participate in sports or other activities involving jumping or twisting motions. They also appear in older patients after trauma, such as falling down the stairs or slipping on the ice.
When the meniscus tears, the cartilage inside the knee joint becomes exposed to friction and wear from the contact between the femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shinbone). This causes inflammation and leads to knee pain. A meniscal tear requires immediate medical attention because neglect causes damage to other sensitive structures in the knee or leads to chipping of the meniscus; contact CSC in Kuala Lumpur (Damansara Heights) to fix and repair a torn meniscus without surgery or injections.
Knee Pain Treatment For Runner’s Knee & Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome
Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is also called a runner’s knee. As the name applies, it is most common in runners but can impact anyone at any age. Runner’s knee or the patellofemoral pain syndrome results when there is excessive friction between the knee cap (patella) and the thighbp0ne (femur).
A runner’s knee can become intensely painful. The knee pain related to a patellofemoral condition is often localized at the front of the knee. If not resolved, it can lead to degenerative changes within the joint, including chondral defects, chondromalacia patella, and osteoarthritis.
The main culprit in PFPS or runner Knee is the abnormal forces acting on the knee joint, leading to inflammation and damage to the cartilage. Several risk factors are associated with PFPS, including age, gender, obesity, and previous injury.
There are two main types of treatment for PFPS: conservative and surgical. Conservative therapies provided at CSC are integrative and thorough. Invasive and surgical procedures should be avoided and reserved only if your conservative course of knee treatment at our center fails to eliminate your conditions.
Baker’s Cyst Or Popliteal Cyst
Baker’s cyst, also known as Popliteal Cyst, is one of the most common disorders in the knee. These fluid-filled cysts form a lump behind the K=knee that often causes pain and stiffness. Baker’s Cyst or popliteal knee cyst usually results from an injury or condition that causes swelling and inflammation inside your knee joint, such as arthritis or tendinitis:
- Meniscus tear
- A torn ACL.
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Other conditions (such as arthritis) that damage the tissue inside the joint
It could be a Baker’s cyst if you have any symptoms at the back of your knee. These symptoms might include:
- Knee pain
- A feeling of fullness or a mass behind the knee
- Tightness or stiffness at the back of the knees
- Soreness in your Knee and lower legs
A Knee cyst such as the baker’s cyst that grows too big can block the vein where it sits and cause pain, swelling, numbness, or even bursting; contact us today for more information on knee pain treatment for a Baker’s cyst.
Osgood-Schlatter Disease (OSD) is not a disease but swelling and inflammation at the attachment point of the patellar tendon on the shinbone. Osgood’s knee pain is typically seen between the ages of 9-15, more common in boys, impacting the growth plate at the tibia. Pain is a result of damage, repetitive movements, or injuries due to sudden overuse injury or repetitive movements ( microtrauma). from overuse or injury.
OSD is caused by repetitive stress injuries, such as running, jumping, playing sports, or participating in other activities that involve high-impact forces. In addition, obesity has also been linked to an increased risk of developing OSD.
Osgood’s knee pain is treatable and recoverable. If neglected, it causes premature calcification of the growth plate, which may lead to frequent or constant pain throughout life. As such, teenagers and kids with knee pain must be carefully assessed and treated to ensure the injured areas heel; Contact CSC for all types of knee pain care, including treatment for Osgood Schlatter’s Knee.
Iliotibial Band Syndrome Or ITB Syndrome
Iliotibial band (ITB) syndrome is a common cause of knee pain. What causes ITB syndrome? How does it affect runners? And what can you do to prevent or treat it?
The iliotibial band (or ITB) is a thick tendon that runs outside the thigh from the hip down to the knee. This tendon helps stabilize the knee joint and supports the lower leg. When running, the ITB becomes tight and pulls on the knee cap, causing irritation and inflammation. Repetitive strain injuries cause iliotibial band syndrome or ITB syndrome.
If you run long distances, you can develop ITBS. In addition, ITBS can also occur after surgery or injury. There are several ways to treat ITBS. Physical therapy combined with chiropractic at CSC is your best option.
Our approach to iliotibial band syndrome causes knee pain helps loosen the muscles around the knee, reduce swelling, rep[air damaged tissue, and improve range of motion. Another helpful option that we often recommend is orthotics. They can provide additional stability at the knee. Homecare such as ice packs can relieve pain and swelling; contact us today for more information.
