I’m in my 40s right now. And recently I’ve been having difficulties especially on my knee parts whenever I try to pray during sujud and squatting. I’m not really sure if this is osteoarthritis just assuming.

Currently I take supplements such as caltrate and glucosamine. Is there any advice to treat this?

Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand your concern regarding your knee condition and how it affects you during prayer. However, we cannot give a diagnosis based on history alone. Further history and examination needed to be done to find out the cause. There are few causes which can lead to your condition:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Injury to the knee structures

We strongly advise you to seek a medical attention with a doctor so that you can get examined and treated accordingly. To overcome your problem, you can do one of these suggested way:

  • Sit on a chair during sujud to ease the pain if the pain getting up after sujud is causing you feel uncomfortable or in pain
  • Do a leg and thigh strengthening exercise such as cycling and swimming
  • Lose some weight
