    This is my 4th ACL tear in 25 years, all have been in adulthood. After this recent one it was suggested I have further evaluation for a connective tissue disorder. It turns out I have a disorder which significantly reduced the chances of any ACL surgery every working. As a result of the surgeries, I have developed severe osteoarthritis. I am in a brace and suffer from horrible knee pain. I have done visco supplements, and a genicular nerve block. I am currently in a physical therapy program and pursuing a knee replacement.

    I'm starting PT next wk for my neck and back to help reduce pain. I'm also getting massages and exercising as much as I can to stay mobile. I'm hoping the strengthening exercises will reduce the pain level.
