Symptoms: Getting up from a seated position and knee giving way or walking and having knee just give way.

You can get x-ray of the knee in standing to know it. Glucosamine and analgesic such as ibuprofen is helpful. Quadriceps exercises are helpful. Hope your query get answered.Wishing you a good health.Take care.
