Treatment Ratings

    Improved
    Ice, Support brace, Weight loss, Swimming
    Not Improved
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Viscosupplementation Injection,

It really slows me down and makes me think about any move I make. I feel best when I am in the pool. But that relief does not last that long. I wear the brace from morning till almost bedtime and take a pain/ anti inflammatory pill every day. I do not like having to rely on prescription meds to be able to do everyday activities! Where do I go from here?
