Ex-runner with chronic knee pain?

2 years, 2 months ago

I know this topic doesnt have much to do with HE, but recently I’ve encountered many who are dealing with this issue and thought it was worth mentioning. Just to be clear, I’m not talking about an inability to use ones legs, I’m solely referring to the pain that creeps up in your knees about a minute into the run. I’ve tried just about every method of treatment, from regular physical therapy, to acupuncture. I have not had surgery mainly because Ive been advised against this by my physicians. I have yet to find who a practitioner who has the slightest idea as to what might be wrong with my knees. Anyone else out dealing with knee pain? If so, how are you coping with it’?

No problem :) Just take the liquid not the pills and take about 3 tbsp through out the day and in about 2-3 months you should feel better and again strength training is also essential.
