Knee Pain Post Childbirth

12/22/2008

Question:

I recently delivered my first child. However after 1.5 months I started having knee pain. My knee gives me a great pain when I tend to fold my legs when I sit down on a flat surface. Is there any treatment of prevention for this.

Thank you.

Answer:

You will need to see either an orthopedic surgeon or a rheumatologist about this.
