I was an average d runner. Logged between 30 -40 miles a week. Knee pain in left knee began over year ago. Sent to PT by ortho for IT therapy. Did Not help. Fitted for brace and ran with brace and still in pain. Did cortisone injection. No relief. Did synovisc injection again no relief. Surgery in spring Chondroplasty... did not work. Actually no change at all. Desperately want to walk with no pain! And maybe run again one day
