Knee Overhaul

With all my various injuries and conditions, the only thing that bugs me on the bike now is some patellar osteoarthritis in the knee of my non-busted leg. I get some pain on the front of the kneecap with pedaling.

So I am starting on PT, and a course of naproxen.

I could have cortisone or SynVisc shots, but those are a last resort for me.

Gotta have the knee in shape for the PEI Gran Fondo in August and BikeMaine in September.

Funny how just a little knee pain/stiffness totally screws up your pedal stroke, which totally screws up riding in general.

SynVisc

I had three SynVisc injections and did/do PT exercises for knee arthritis. For me, the PT works and the SynVisc didn't. That said, I know someone who gets the injections every 6 months or so and experiences great pain relief. YMMV

Thanks

Good to know the PT has been effective. I have had good luck with PT on a couple other minor knee issues. Your experience with the injections is similar to what I've heard - kind of random.
