Injured meniscus several years ago, got injections, they helped but could not continue them because they were over $200 & I could not afford ongoing injections. Swimming helped, but again had to join YWCA & that was expensive also, Could not continue, physical therapy helped some but had to quit lost my means of transportation, so back to phase 1 still hurting
