Treatment Ratings

    Almost Cured
    Arthroscopic Surgery
    Improved
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Support brace
    Not Improved
    Orthotics, Supportive Shoes,

I have to walk on concrete floors at work, which I feel makes my problem worse. I sometimes wear a knee brace and use a product called Unkers and Active-on that gives me temporary relief as well as Aleve. The pain almost always wakes me at night and I rub one of the above products on it and sometimes I will put my brace on. Probably works 80% of the time and I am able to go back to sleep.
