Dear Sangeeta,

For your knee pain.
You probably irritated your knee while running. Try supportive running shoes on your next run. For now
Protect the knee-put on a wrap
Rest-Speaks for itself
Ice-As much as possible
Compress-Apply an ace wrap if swollen
Elevate-if it swells or throbs.
If it is not better in @ 3 weeks see your orthopedist again.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck!
