    I just had a steroid shot (my first) in each knee on Tuesday. Tonight was my first time to exercise since then, because the pain finally subsided. I was able to use a recumbent elliptical without having pain! Also, I spent a few minutes on a rowing machine, because it seemed to help my knees bend more. Thanks for the suggestions!

    I had two meniscus trims in two diff surgeries. The first was pretty helpful and when I healed I was good for awhile. Tore that sucker again jumping in a wave pool at great wolf lodge while holding a friend's kid (while jumping). The 2nd surgery didn't really fix the knee and I ended up with a sharp feeling as if a nerve or tendon was snapping across a nerve. There was also arthritis that was "cleaned up" on both surgeries. Now it's bone on bone, extreme pain daily and I tried using an exercise bike to help move the fluid up and out from a lot of constant inflammation. The last steroid injection I had helped, then I had a second synvisc injection and ended up having the pain increase a LOT after that injection. I still don't know why but since then it's been degrading and my ability is really low now. I have to take ultram and Norco for the pain and the other knee has arthritis as well as hips, hands, ankles etc. It's disheartening. I feel like if I get one area dealt with then another area goes out. I take also celebs 200mg twice a day and that is the only thing that helps besides the Norco and the Norco on it's own doesn't even do it. The advice on no uneven or hills terrain is spot on. I walked by a lake today and in an uneven dog park and later tonight had a really sharp pain in my knee and it was feeling like if I pushed it more it'd go out entirely tonight.
    I really agree as a long term arthritis patient with your advice to manage the pain and how to avoid flaring it up. I do use ice for my knee but might give the heat a try. I do hot baths and that seems to help all of my areas of arthritis and then do ice after I do activity to help prevent inflammation flares. one that I didn't know which I wish I'd known earlier was not to get arthroscopic surgery. So what do they do now for a torn meniscus? Live with it? I can say my first surgery for torn meniscus did buy me time and ability but then the 2nd surgery was a huge knee and lower thigh insult and I have chronic pain there now in knee, down my lower leg outer front side and up my leg from my knee same area of outer front. Also I have pain inside and in the back of my knee. Any ideas or pointing to directions of help would be much appreciated. I've been approved for another synvisc but I think the cortisone would help more at this point. The X-ray shows bone on bone on the outside right leg right side of the bones. doc suggested a brace to force my leg to ride more on the inside of my knee but then cancelled the idea when he found out I'm on medicare and medicaid and said to just wear better shoes. Long story there but thanks for doing this video.

    It seems to me that the pain in my knee has changed the way I walk and in turn puts pain in my lower back…is that correct?

    I had trouble with my knee and pain around it in various places for months. Those straight leg raises have really helped and I can highly recommend them!

    Please consider doing a video on exercising when you have iliosacral joint/low back pain. Because I anticipate pain, I don't exercise very often, and I have the fat to prove it. Even walking causes low back spasm and groin pain. Exercises involving raising the leg on that side just hurt too much and I worry about making the injury worse. But I need and want to exercise!

    I like that one with the emphasis on stretching and strengthening the inside of the leg and knee, since that is where I seem to get the most pain. I tend to have more trouble with my left knee than the right one, but that one acts up sometimes as well. After being plagued with all sorts of tendonitis, muscle spasms, and more pain than I like to feel I am getting back to my former routine of getting outside in the early am and going for a run, or rather, a racewalk, but running sounds better. I have been noticing it makes a difference what side of the road I am on and how much it is banked, because it either feels good to have one side elevated a bit or it hurts more because it is lower. I also use a patellar tendon strap if I am going to push my left knee really hard, or it gets mad at me a day or so later. It matters a lot if I have good shoes on – I am partial to New Balance and I replace them when the cushioning starts to go. I have kept a few pairs that I like to wear just for ordinary walking, because they are comfy. I learned to get new shoes way back years ago when I was on the track team in college – they told us to replace our shoes every 3 months or 300 miles, whichever came first. That was back in olden times before they were selling moisture-wicking apparel and a lot of other athletic gear. I still remember people doing the ice in a paper cup thing after practice, especially as we got close to the state meet at the end of the season. People were at their peaks, but they had also developed a lot of hurting areas and were trying to keep them from getting so sore and inflammed they had to rest.

    I use MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) powder + lemon juice. Taken daily dissolved in water. It keeps joint inflammation at bay. Love your channel! ♥

    I see you mention the arthritic knee and not being able to straighten it as much as the good knee, but mine is oposit of that. My arthritic knee seems to over straighten and that makes it hurt. What is that about and is there a reason for it?

    I needed this! Thank you. Before we run to PT sessions, get injections, etc. I think it is worth doing at home exercises/stretches/modifications first. BTW who thumbed down? Watsamatta you?

    I watched several of your videos so far. I notice that Bob is dominating the conversation in most videos, with Brad hopping to get the props or mumbling agreement. I would like to see a more even sharing. If you have 10 items to discuss, why not alternate? I'm sure Brad has equal expertise as Bob.

    For those of you looking for a natural anti-inflammatory, good quality tumeric in pill form worked just as well for me as prescription Celebrex for my post-microfracture knee surgery pain and inflammation. The downsides are like nsaids in that you have to be careful of bleeding, such as ulcers. I noticed I bruised a lot easier (I bruise really easy anyway and can't even take vitamin E or I will bruise) and got more hot flashes than normal, so I stopped taking it, but it sure did work!

    I told a guy at work about it and he tried it and said it worked great for his knee pain too, but he also got the bruising and he said his feet were sweating a lot.

    Anyways, it's another option to try!

    Great video! I was just wondering about your comment on knee arthroscopy surgery. I have a slight tear in my meniscus with a little touch of arthritis. Some doctors believe that cleaning this area out with arthroscopy will help alleviate some of the pain from the meniscus tear and get me back to being active. I was hoping to heal it naturally through exercise, etc. but not sure what to do. Also, since its hard to get blood flow to the meniscus, what do you think about the Knee BFST Wraps that use heat and electrodes to stimulate blood flow to that area? Do you have any patients that have had success with these wraps in healing or eliminating symptoms of a meniscus tear?
