Regards,

From the info you convey. The complaints of pain in the knee area may be caused by the influence of age and the weight of the load supported by the knee. This condition is also called osteoarthritis or inflammation of the joints, resulting in increased friction between the joints and joint cartilage that cannot help the joints move properly. Therefore, complaints of pain when moving, standing or when the support on the knee increases.

Several other conditions can also cause the same complaint, such as:

1. Infections of the joints

2. trauma to the joint

3. muscle tension around the knee

4. abnormalities in the ligaments supporting the knee

To ascertain the cause and for a better examination, you can advise your parents to consult directly with a rheumatology internist and / or orthopedist at the nearest hospital. The doctor will carry out examinations and plan supporting examinations such as blood tests or radiological examinations.

Treatment and care will be given according to the results of the examination obtained.

That's the info we can convey, also read osteoarthritis.
