How to Recover from Inside Knee Pain Quickly and Effectively

Recovering from inside knee pain can be a long and arduous process, but with the right treatment methods, you can speed up the healing process and get back to your normal activities in no time. Generally, it takes 6 to 8 weeks for full recovery, but there are several ways to reduce this time. The most appropriate treatment for knee pain depends on its cause. It could be due to trauma, such as a fall or an accident, or it could be caused by a sport or exercise that puts pressure on the knee joint.

If the cause of the pain is unknown, if it causes distress, or if it interferes with daily life, it is best to consult a doctor for the best treatment. Medial collateral ligament (MCL) tears are the most common knee ligament injury, and approximately 40% of all knee injuries involve the MCL. If your provider suspects an MCL tear, he or she will bend your knee and press it to see if the knee is loose. The medial collateral ligament gets its name because it is located on the inside of the knee (closer to the “midline” of the body) and is located on the side of the knee joint.

Exercise and movement can help speed up the healing process. However, if you have a grade 3 MCL tear (severe), it will be difficult for you to walk because your knee will be unstable and you probably won't want to walk, as it will hurt a lot. Surgery and taking painkillers can't do much, but they don't fully restore the knee to its original shape. Fortunately, there are several therapeutic alternatives that can help with knee pain.

Physical therapy is one of them; it helps strengthen muscles around the knee joint and improve flexibility. Other treatments include using ice packs or heat packs to reduce inflammation and swelling, taking anti-inflammatory medications, using braces or supports for extra stability, and using foam rollers or massage balls to massage tight muscles around the knee joint. In conclusion, recovering from inside knee pain can take 6 to 8 weeks, but with proper treatment methods you can speed up this process and get back to your normal activities in no time.
