Knee Brace, Knee Sleeve, or neither?
« on: September 14, 2017, 03:49:12 PM »

  I am 67 and have run for over 30 years. Three years ago a surgeon said I needed a knee replacement. I didnít have it and now have a new problem. I had an X-ray, then an MRI of my left knee. I went back to the surgeon who told me I had a bruised bone? The MRI showed some subchondral degenerative signal in the distal femur. Also small partial-thickness cartilage fissure, Tear of the free margin of the mid body of the medial meniscus. Indistinct tear versus meniscal contusion at the junction of the mid body and posterior horn of the medial meniscus. The surgeon said I didnít have a tear? Why would the MRI findings say other? Would a Knee brace or Knee sleeve help? Thank you in advance for your very informative website, and all your help!!
