Is it weird I thought it was cool when my orthopedist told me my knee caps were “all wrong”? Turns out my IT bands and hips are so tight, combined with glute & inner thigh weakness, that my knee caps have moved several millimeters to the outside of each knee. Evidently, that’s not good. I’ll agree, considering the amount of pain I have in the left one.
Also got two cortisone shots in my knee as depicted above. One in the side (medial) and one in the front. 3 weeks ago the pain started and just has not gone away. X-rays show some degeneration of the joint. So what to do?
Rehab starts late Wednesday afternoon. Need to gain flexibility and gain strength. Amazing what the body can do when it’s screwy.
Have to say, the cortisone injections worked well. The knee is quite stiff, bit I can walk pretty normally and may be able to resume light swinging (chip/pitch shots) on Thursday. Time to work.
