Treatment Ratings

    Improved
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Massage, Supportive Shoes, Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate
    Not Improved
    Ice, Cortisone Injection, Support brace, Viscosupplementation Injection

The brace did nothing for me. I told them my knee as such did not hurt to walk it was pain on the in side of knee. Yes I had fell. They said I had a bone bruis. They in jetted chicken juice. I told them it was not the knee as such but they wanted me to get the injections. More money wasted. I still have the pain but I can control it with a strap. Tight around leg just below knee. They seem to not under stand what I say. Money and more money and still have the same pain.
