Good evening Runners,
I am new to this, so please forgive me if I am posting something that has already been posted, but I'm looking for some advice.
Last November I dislocated my knee, alongside that I damaged cartridge and it has been a nightmare ever since. Pain wise, I'm a lot better than I was, although when I start running I do feel a considerate amount. It has been 6 months now so I would like to get back into it.
I'm fed up of not being active, so I'm after a good quality knee support, or advice on more recovery.
Anybody dislocated their knee before? if so, how long will did it take before you started running again? with or without a support.
Thanks in advance,
Conclusion: In this trial involving patients without knee osteoarthritis but with symptoms of a degenerative medial meniscus tear, the outcomes after arthroscopic partial meniscectomy were no better than those after a sham surgical procedure
Do your research before contemplating surgery. If a surgeon is suggesting conservative measures, well, that is even more reason not to do it! Sports injury is the best money maker for private orthopods and I am sure it definitely influences their decisions. The average orthopod doubles his income and makes an additional £100,000 from their private practice despite most of their time being in the NHS.
