Re: Interesting paper on chondroitin sulphate on synovitis

Thanks for your answers. In my case (39M), after needing surgery for synovitis, adhesions & arthrofibrosis from what seemed an innocent chondromalacia, I want to be ready and prevent future episodes without the use of NSAIDS. I've been also finding many papers regarding green tea and curcumin fo...

Interesting paper on chondroitin sulphate on synovitis

Effect of chondroitin sulphate on synovitis of knee osteoarthritic patients
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/28245911/

Besides addressing cartilage (questionable), this is probably why people report benefits using CS; reducing synovial membrane inflammation, very common in knee OA.

Re: Bad limp 8 months after arthroscopy/lysis of adhesions

I would tell you to go back to crutches and retrain your walking by bending and extending your knees properly. Also you can try going to a pool and walking inside re-educating the proper gait of flexion and extension of the leg, so you don't have to care about balance or falling. One thing is sure, ...

Re: Synovitis and Arthrofibrosis: Post-Op Internal Bleeding

Re: Synovitis and Arthrofibrosis: Post-Op Internal Bleeding

Dr will be sending me for further blood tests to look into those parameters if things don't improve soon. Also I will be taking it easy with exercises, just ROM and straight leg vmo stuff. I am upping m...

Synovitis and Arthrofibrosis: Post-Op Internal Bleeding

Hi all, I am glad to have found this forum. Would be nice to see if someone can throw some light into my story. I (40M) suffer from chondromalacia patella grade 3 in my left knee (with small ulceration), I imagine due to old injury that caused vmo weakness and patellar maltracking. Out of nowhere, I...
