Have a nice morning

Thursday, January 17, 2019

Good Morning; Been having some knee problems. It is just amazing how I can forget an injury to my knee nearly 40 years ago. any way, during all my cleaning I found a knee brace that I used years ago, -is in good shape. I got on you tube and found knee exercises to do to help with my knee. My knee is not aligned correctly - born with it. Discovered this 40 years ago. Doctor told me to stop running your knee does not align correctly. But this video yesterday - gave me a series of things to do to see what the problem is. It is the same- my knee cap has moved and the ligaments that hold it in place have weakened. also the problems with my foot on the other leg has exacerbated the problem. I have been doing my exercises and using the brace and the pain has lessened a great deal. I am also doing strength training again and not doing treadmill for a while. I am more organized now and I feel great about less clutter. Now I have to work with Dh to work on de-cluttering his home office. In a good place - one day at a time. Have a good day! You all deserve a wonderful positive day. emoticon emoticon

    O, My, Goodness! I have a old knee injuries (yup both knees separate injuries). If I move my left leg a certain way the tendon does something wonkie and I can't move my leg till I pop it back in, I have to lift the leg straight out with my right leg. Creepy!!! Can you give me the link to the youtube? I have been trying to strengthen my body with the hope that the knees come to a happy place. I started using tumeric and it helps with knee discomfort.

    Ohhhhhh, I can identify totally with knee pain.

    Strengthen those quads! They take so much pressure off the knee. Good for you for using that brace, too.

    HUGS and good luck!

    Blessings on your journey. Hopefully, you're knees will allow you to at least walk without pain.
