Gracilis Tendon Knee Pain
Torn miniscus, bursa: The more common causes of your symptoms are petallar bursitis (the patellar bursa becomes swollen, irritated and painful), and a meniscal tear (tearing of the cartilage disc between the femur and the tib/fib complex. If it persists for more than a few days, you need to see an orthopedist for an eval and knee MRI. In the meantime, an adjustable brace would not hurt, and would give support.

Many things: If you injured it you should see a doc so that you are not making it worse. For mild pain there are many classes of medication including tylenol, (acetaminophen) nsaids (ibuprofen, naproxen), and others like tramadol. Call one of your docs and see what they prescribe. Avoid narcotics...Too many people prescribe them and they have many side effects.
Depends on Cause: This question is too broad to answer properly; would need more specifics. Location, duration, type of knee pain, aggravating factors, etc. Are vital to understanding the cause, as is physical exam. A good history & phys. Incl osteopathic hands-on exam may provide some answers. Could be neural/structural/infection, etc. Generic treatments incl. Heat/ice, surgery, manipulation, prolotherapy, meds.
Depends on the cause: In general, the pain comes from the joint itself, the ligaments, tendons and shock absorbers known as bursae around the knee. Sometimes the pain is referred from elsewhere like your lower back or hip. Once the cause is known the treatment plan can be formulated. Some basic ideas include keeping your weight down and certain types of exercise to keep the muscles around your knee conditioned.
Pain type is crucial: Knee pain can be joint pain, muscle pain, bone pain, bursitis pain, tendon pain, muscle pain, etc. Just because the knee hurts does not mean arthritis and does not mean a need for injections or surgery. You may need a good conditioning program, even seeing a physicial therapist. Muscle strength is important to help knee pain - the muscle help protect the knee.See 1 more doctor answer
