The goal is to minimise pain and inflammation of the knee joint. The knee surgeon may prescribe some NSAIDs analgesics, which may help in eliminating both pain and inflammation. Cold compresses may also help in minimising pain and swelling. Rest of the knee is advised and it is recommended to wear a brace when exercising. Surgery may be needed in rare cases where malalignment of the patella and the femur demands correction.
