    Knee pain

    Knee pain is a common condition that can be caused by both short- and long-term problems. Many short-term knee problems don't need help from doctors, and people can often help with their own recovery. Also, home remedies can help with many of the long-term knee pain issues. Strengthening the upper leg muscles - the quadriceps muscles - through exercise can help protect the knee joint . These muscles are on the sides and front of the thighs.

    Protection refers to protecting the knee from further injury, for example by wearing a knee brace .

    Ice can help reduce swelling and inflammation. It should be wrapped in a cloth and applied several times for 20 minutes on the first day of the injury. Never put ice directly on the skin, as this can lead to further damage.

    Abduction cushions and positioning cushions are the best aids to prevent knee pain while sleeping.
