Recently after a weekend of gardening (lot's of kneeling) my right knee swelled up and was very painful.
A visit to the Doctors and the hospital for X-rays reveals I have osteoarthritis in my knee (probably as a result of a motorbike accident trauma to my knee when I was 17 - I'm 44 now).
The Doctor suggested I took up lower impact sports, particularly as I'm a well-built guy.
Reading up on the internet - as usual there is a mixed bag of opinions - some saying to stop, some saying continue and some saying adapt style, surfaces etc. and then continue.
I'm also due to see a physio who hopefully can give me a good professional opinion.
Has anyone on here been diagnosed with OA and if so what did you do?
