Avoid kneeling, avoid kneeling and avoid kneeling.

I did suffer from tennis elbow which is the same inflammation as housemaidís knee and I found ibuprofen gel worked well. I donít think exercise would work as you need to get the inflammation under control and I wouldíve thought exercise would aggravate it.

As gvj said avoid kneeling.

I suffered from it for years when working as an electrician. Change of job cured it.

Mr G had bursitis ( which I think is what HM's knee is) but in the other bursa if the knee (2 of, I recall). He was also doing a lot of kneeling at the time, plus lots of car driving in slow traffic, which is what finally set it off badly.

His physio's advice was:
a) don't kneel;
b) ice ( bag of peas) frequently and every time it gets aggravated;
c) rest, avoid and don't aggravate it.

Apparently you can get steroid injections but they need a very specialist or well-trained person to administer them productively, though many GPs will offer them.

Mr G's cleared up on its own after a few months of rest, avoidance, knee pads and many bags of peas.
