Treatment Ratings

    Cortisone Injection, Viscosupplementation Injection, Walking/Hiking,
    Not Improved
    Ice, Support brace, Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate

I try to walk 11,000 steps daily. Some days, the pain precludes my doing this.
I used to enjoy a 5k run, but my knees will not allow this again. If i try to jog, my knees are painful for more than a week.

I want to be more active, but the knee pain precludes much more than walking.
