late 1995- 2004 a metal plate kept my left foot from moving many angles. Plate removed started recovering immediately. Very bizarre time frame for several months, I even tripped over myself. Not to mention emotionally the first time I ran (I am Not all that emotional mind you). It is now over 2 years later, I just turned 34. I am not healing like I was younger. My knee cap seems to have moved to the left and stayed there with pain, but my leg is straight, much more muscle on calf and ankle doesn't snap crackle and pop. Arch in foot is a confident non-flat footed feeling if anyone knows what I mean.Knees are tricky to fix, advice on where to go as not to get ripped off by fake therapy due to pretentious pain. My case is quite real, I am a recovering long term lepper. I do the normal stuff I have seen on tv,etc, such as slow excersizing, warm showers, and I do not believe in pain meds. I thought it to be a phase in what has been the longest ill I hope to never have again or wish upon anybody...but it isn't going away. Where do I go?
PS: in another thread here you can read of my misdiagnosis that destroyed a decade of my life.Hence the question on where to go must have a best answer, and thank you for reading.. the advice may be free, but where I end up with a bill will not be :rolleyes:
