Knee pain when walking, climbing stairs, bending down etc. Help Please?
Well I dont remember exactly when it started I know that it has been hurting for at least a month, see I do Capoeira in November I took a month break and started again last December, on the day I came back it was not really class day so we did not warm up and went on to kicking etc right off the bat.

I think this may have been it, my knee pain has been bad it hurts when I walk, specially when I bend down or walk up/down stairs. It also makes popping noises from time to time.

I feel like I need to go to the doctor and get xrays and an mri. Thee problem is my mom is not in a stable economic situation at this moment and we have no health insurance I asked her if we could at least go to a family doctor and she said maybe.

My question is, is there anything I can do to prevent further injury to my knee, and is it worth spending money on a family doctor who will probably tell my mom to go to an orthopedic surgeon or go to an orthopedist right away?

When you say that you do Capoeira, I assume that you do Capoeira Regional (the one that flips in the air).

I know too many people who destroy their knee doing Capoeira Regional. If you want to do Capoeira, I would recommend Capoeira Angola. This is a good step in saving your knees.

Welcome to the world of wear and tear pains.

As one grow older, it happens that joints, and most especially knee joints,seem to start giving us problems.

Many causes of knee pain, especially those related to overuse or physical activity, respond well to self-care:

* Rest and avoid activities that aggravate the pain, especially weight bearing activities.
* Apply ice. First, apply it every hour for up to 15 minutes. After the first day, apply it at least 4 times per day.
* Keep your knee elevated as much as possible to bring any swelling down.
* Gently compress the knee by wearing an ace bandage or elastic sleeve. Either can be purchased at most pharmacies. This may reduce swelling and provide support.
* Take acetaminophen for pain or ibuprofen for pain and swelling.
* Sleep with a pillow underneath or between your knees.

Take a 'X' ray of the knee joint.
Do not climb stairs.
Use knee caps.
Take care.
