Sherry has been struggling with a knee injury for months now. I’m glad she’s been able to get back on the road and begin running again with the help of a really neat knee brace I found for her on Amazon (the Perpetuum Knee Brace with Patella Band).
If you recall a previous post several months ago, I really messed up my right knee right after we got back from vacation in March. It had already been bothering me a bit, and then after sitting on the porch one day with Buddy on my lap for an hour or so (putting pressure on my knee cap) I got up and had excruciating pain under my kneecap.
I thought at first that it would be temporary, but the pain was persistent and kept me walking with a limp, sometimes to the point where it would just give out while I was trying to walk or come down stairs. Finally after an MRI, I was diagnosed with Runners’ Knee – a common, but nasty condition where the cartilage under the kneecap has worn down and the kneecap keeps moving out of the groove where it’s supposed to be.
