    I also walk funny, so i have insoles but my knee is almost 10% now

    Rest easy buddy and happy healing.
    I hope that was a typo (10%) , anyway I haven't really noticed a deterioration in my game other than I am a bit cautious of big mad lunges after doing the diagonals because of carrying speed but then again I am only a social player.

    Do you wear knee braces to play in? With me it's both knees and I was wondering if wearing a brace would help keep the knee cap in position so it does not hurt as much

    Sorry,

    I meant 100% lol. Another thing you can talk about with your doctor is perhaps strapping it up? In England you have Elastoplast, comes in a roll and hopefully, if you take th knee cap to the left (presuming its your right knee) then it might help with the tracking of the knee cap.

    I used to use it on my ankle but it is murder to get off because it is sticky (I have hairy legs painfull), I came across a bandage that sticks to itself but not to you when you wrap it and that seems to work ok although I have't tried it on my knees yet.

    My left knee suffers patellofemoral pain syndrome. It clicks and pops all the time with a slight sensation of soreness. I went to see UBC's Sport Medicine experts. They said that the only solution was to do strength training, rest and avoid high-impact activities. Strength training should focus on the weaker side of the muscle group that controls the knee.

    I had my MRI scan on Thursday and have to wait until the 11th March for the results.

    Has anyone else had one of these scans? They are extremely noisy, I fell asleep whilst they were doing one of my knees and they had to wake me up to change over to the other

    Yes, I had one to determine whether I had CJD (creutzfeldt jakob disease, the human form of mad cow disease). They scanned my brain

    I have a similar problem with my left knee, its the soft area below my knee cap. Don't feel it walking but going up and down stairs takes a bit more effort. Its been like this for over 5 months now but I had accupunture (sp?) and some chinese medicine which seem to have helped but not completely cured it.

    Anyway, I saw my local doctor last week about it and he's referred me to a physiotherapist - who I'm going to see tomorrow.

    I got my results today and the consultant said there was nothing wrong with the ligaments or tendons and they were as should be. There is no problem or thinning of the knee cap or cartiledge and apparently the knee cap is tracking properly.

    It's just mechanical pain associated with movement

    Why are my knees so sore with no obvious damage

    Cheung?

    Gidday mate,
    Same thing here, but have a read on www.prolotherapy.com

    It's been a miracle cure for my knees. It's absolutely insane what they do, but the results are fantastic. Just reading won't do you any harm.

    Cheers

    Why not get a 2nd and 3rd opinion for it? Probably the consultant missed something?

    I have the same problem. My right knee sits firmer and sticks out higher than my left knee.

    http://www.kneeguru.co.uk/html/steps...ics/tests.html

    Another visit to UBC's Sport Medicine specialists confirm my condition as chondromalacia patella.

    I am taking 3 X 1300mg capsule of glucosamine, chdondroitin & MSM per day.

    Has anyone heard of CHONDROCYTE (CARTICEL) GRAFTING?

    He done all the usual pulling and stretching tests and no pain, he measured round the top of my knee and the right is one inch bigger than the left, not even the quad and hamstring just the top of the knee

    Default Cartilage Damage & Operation

    This is quite graphic. The following link relates to an operation to repair cartilage damage of the femur bone:

    Aargh, I thought Pete meant "graphical / diagrammatic", but he meant "explicit graphics". Definitely not for the faint hearted...like myself.

    Here is the main page for this type of knee surgery. As one can see, the patella is detached during the surgery. Okie, I will throw up now!

    glucosamine is quite expensive here..and heard that its not recommended for heart patients or those with diabetes

    also after spending and eating for months and finding out it didnt work for you

    for my dad who is at risk..i use glucosamine skin creme...topical application on the spot than having to take internally...might work faster directly like it did for him

    anyways...for the older folkes..drinking apple cider vinegar with honey and water as your sports drink might help you as it did me...with aging..inefficient uric acid removal and accumulation might be causing your joint pains...drink it at least once a month
