Seven years ago, I underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in my left knee. After the surgery, I was excited about the prospect of returning to my active lifestyle. Unfortunately, the procedure was relatively unsuccessful. Although my knee got slightly better, it still swelled tremendously. Over the next few years, I developed severe osteoarthritis in this knee. Desperate for relief from the constant pain and swelling, I visited a new orthopedic doctor. This individual recommended that I wear a special knee brace when I engaged in strenuous activities. My orthopedist also prescribed an anti-inflammatory drug for me to take daily. On this blog, you will discover the most effective methods for managing arthritis of the knee.
