having had paid in my left knee on and off for about 3 years i have finally been diagnosed with Patellofemoral degenerative disease with a slightly tight lateral retinaculum. ive been told that arthroscopy is quite unpredicatable and would probably give no improvement. i have most pain when walking downstairs but is sometimes noticeable when i drive too.
i have been referred to NHS physio to build up my medial quads and cant deny that when ive used the physio before i have noticed some improvement. i have also been told to stop running as it isnt good for my knees!! obviously i stopped running when the pain started about two months ago but the thought of giving up forever is getting to me now.
my questions are:- has anyone else had this? if so what stage are you at? will i be able to restart running?
would a sports physio be better to see than a normal NHS physio?
many thanks for any replies
