Injury update time!

Lower spine MRI can back (mostly) fine - minor degeneration in a few discs, but nothing serious enough to be a big issue or cause knee pain.

When that came back clear, doc ordered an MRI of both my knees. The results just came back today. Doc now thinks this whole knee problem might be due to poor tracking of my knee caps. This seems possible (I've always know they are too "loose"), but we'll see.

Doctors orders are to start hitting the gym 3x a week with a couple specific exercises in mind, no cardio yet since even swimming/the elliptical has been problematic. Fingers crossed this actually helps!

    I'll say this is good news (relatively)! I wish you a speedy recovery, Carly.

    Me too David! I did 1.5 months of PT early this summer and it didn't really do much at all. Now we're switching gears w/ what muscles to target. Hopefully it works this time around :)

    I had that about 4 years ago Carly. Could barely walk for a whole year waiting for the specialist to get me in. Found poor knee tracking to be the problem (mine was due to very tight unbalanced quads) Doc gave me stretches and exercises to do. A few days and I was back on my feet and a few weeks I was almost 100%. We are all wishing for a quick recovery for you!

    Wow, Sheldon I'm sorry to hear it went on for so long but it gives me hope that it resolved so quickly with PT!

    I am fixing to have the same kind of MRI done to check for lower leg issues.
