First of all, what is actually wrong with the knee? You may need an orthopedic specialist. If just feeling pain occasionally, take Glucosamine tablets.

I never trust chinese sinseh, especially where it concerns the bones. They don't do x-rays, so how can they treat the problem. I know of many cases where the injuries were aggravated by chinese sinseh. It's always wiser to consult an orthopaedic specialist where knee problem is concerned. I had knee injury when I was younger, due to over-exercising. Luckily, I went to the specialist, and then I had surgery, and my problem is then solved. :D

Is this question about kids, or adult, or elderly? And is there any known/obvious problem or diagnosis (eg. is it a sprained knee, or the cartilage worn out)?

In any case, I agree that chinese sinseh unlikely to be good for anything concerning the bones (i am a real-life example).

However, if it concerns the muscles, ligament, tendons, etc. then it is the reverse: western docs will give 2 things only - MC and painkillers, plus tell you to rest and let it heal...
