In brief: Osteochondritis
Resting your joint.
Avoid activities that put impact stress on your joint, such as jumping and running. You may need to use crutches for a time, especially if pain causes you to limp. Physical therapy. Most often, this therapy includes stretching and range-of-motion exercises, and strengthening exercises for the muscles that support the involved joint. Ultimately, surgery, if these don't work.
