What do you think about the healing? Thank you

Pain in the knee area can be caused by injury (sprain). This injury can occur due to a variety of activities that involve the knee, for example when you go up and down excessive stairs, run around, do other sports, or have an accident. Apart from injuries, there are many other conditions that can also cause knee pain. Knee pain can affect people of all ages, but the most common is the elderly.
Pain in the knee, accompanied by a sound that is heard when the knee exerts movement may indicate the following:
Injuries, for example those that cause anterior cruciate ligament damage, fractures, meniscus tears, bursitis, or tendinitis Mechanical disorders, eg loose body (cartilage tear or bone floating in the joint gap), iliotibial band syndrome, kneecap dislocation, pain spreading from the base thigh or leg Arthritis, for example due to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, septic arthritis, pseudogout Blood vessel disorders, such as peripheral artery disease, deep vein thrombosis Nerve disorders, such as pinched spinal cord, diabetes, deficiency of certain nutritional vitamins or minerals nerves Viral or bacterial infection Psychosomatic disorders, etc. Your complaint has been going on for a long time, so you shouldn't let it drag on. Go directly to your doctor or orthopedic surgeon to find out the exact cause. Based on a thorough physical examination, especially in the foot area, as well as supporting tests, such as X-rays, ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, blood tests, or amniocentesis, general doctors can determine the best treatment for your complaint. If necessary, the doctor can also refer you to a neurologist to get the right treatment.
What you should do right now is:
Do not move the knee excessively which is often painful, but also do not let it sit for too long Compress the sore knee with ice cubes Do not massage or massage the sore knee Avoid excessive weight Exercise regularly, choose the type of exercise that does not cause excessive stretch in the knee area, for example by swimming, cycling, yoga, floor exercises, etc. Apply pain relief cream to the knees so that complaints are reduced (for example drugs containing paracetamol) Live a healthy diet No smoking Wear comfortable pants and footwear.
