Prepatellar bursitis: Its difficult to say without examining you or without further info. When patients complain of a squishy knee especially at the front it often refers to prepatellar bursitis. This is an inflamation of the bursa or protective sac anterior to your knee cap. It can become inflammed when aggravated by hitting it or kneeling on it.

I am a male, 60 y/o, 5' 7" and weight 195 lb. It is about one week that I have pain in my left knee only when I walk down the stairs, what should I do?

Knee pain: Often knee discomfort on walking down the stairs is an early symptom of osteoarthritis of that knee. I recommend weight reduction to lessen the load on your knees. For diagnosis of osteoarthritis a simple xray is usually helpful. Taking nsaids like Advil can be done as needed. If symptoms worsen see an orthopedic specialist for diagnosis and advice regarding treatment but this sounds mild for now ...Read more

How long do cortisone shots last and do they help a lot, had one on my knee today cause it makes it hard for me to walk long distances, will it help?

Knee injections: Cortisone injections into the knee can reduce pain and improve functioning. How long they might last is unpredictable, however. Many will get long term relief, for others it may be short-lived. It is reasonable to repeat the procedure once if relief was short. If the second injection also doesn't work well injection of an artificial joint fluid can be considered. ...Read more

If you have joint line pain or a catch/locking sensation in your knee you may have a torn meniscus. The if the pain does not go away the next step may be to get an MRI of your knee. ...Read more
