Knee support for hiking

Common Questions and Answers about Knee support for hiking


Avatar f tn Hi. I have had persistent and worsening knee pain for about a year. I have been to my GP about it explaining that I physically can't walk without wearing knee supports (often a tube support and patellar strap together!) because my knees feel like they are going to give way. My job as a waitress before being furloughed for the time being was hell and I would often be limping by the end of the shift.
Avatar m tn The pain kept switching between my right and left knee for about 2 weeks but NEVER experienced the pain on both knees at once. - May 14 severe watery diarrhea lasted about 5 days and always mostly in the morning after waking up and after eating. - Some time in mid-May I had drenching night sweat for one night. Had few other night sweats but very lightly. 3-4 times in total. - NO FEVER OR RASH - I'm aware symptoms are not an indicator. Are these ARS symptoms?
Avatar n tn Arthritis is a degenerative condition that needs to be treated for your quality of life. Keep hiking! You are blessed and an inspiration.
Avatar f tn So i went hiking today and it really wasn't too intense, it was fun and active and my three year old went with so it couldn't of been that bad :) but now I'm feeling all crampy and uncomfortable. It's not intense pain but it is keeping me up and making me wonder if i pushed myself too hard, I haven't really been an exerciser"... any thoughts?
Avatar n tn i had the same surgery as melhal and im a 42 yr old female, however, i cannot bend my knee when i walk or go down the stairs because something on the side of my knee pops and it hurts so much and i limp and still have swelling in front and back of my knee.
Avatar f tn I didnt start hiking ...
Avatar m tn I am a 26-year-old man and lead an active lifestyle mostly by exercising in the gym and walking most places (in fact I had done an intense leg workout the day before hiking). Although I sit for long stretches as part of my work. Should I be worried about this or can it go away by itself? Thank you!
Avatar m tn I first started with small itchy bumps on the tops of my feet and ankles. I have had them now for 9 days and no change. I saw a dermatologist in Florida who thought they looked like bug bites. My husband started getting them 4 days ago (our last day up north) on both ankles and one knee. His have now spread up both calves and are now progressing up his thigh. What is causing this? I'm worried because we have 2 kids under 10 who don't show any signs. Could they get it too?
Avatar m tn ve had pain on the outside of my left knee for over a year. I am an amateur cyclist. I have been doing physio (glute strengthening and stretches), ART, gunn IMS, acupuncture, 3 rounds of oral and topic anti-inflammatory (2 months of diclofenac 10%), i've had a cortisone shot over 3 weeks ago, and there has never been anything that has ever helped. Actually acupuncture helps but it only feels better for about 2-4 days after and at $80 a visit it isn't a viable long-term solution.
Avatar f tn I will be doing a lot of traveling this summer, lots of airports; does an orthopaedic boot support both knee and ankle? I use Voltaren gel and take Tramadol twice a day.
1317473 tn?1329245903 hi, any idea what support is best for a torn meniscus and torn posterior cruciate ligament
Avatar f tn If you're hiking on mountain trails, and you don't say if you are, hiking boots are made for that. Today's light-weight hiking boots are really running shoes inside a firm support shoe for the bends and creases of mountain hiking. Aside from that, if you don't have shin splits -- if you do, you have to deal with that before doing anything else -- are you stretching at all? You might be very tight, which makes it harder to do new things.
Avatar m tn I have had heel pain (left foot) for 5 years, sacroiliac joint pain (rt side) for 10+ years, eye inflammation/dryness (left) for many years and had psoriasis on palm of right hand about 7 years ago (currently fine). None of these is debilitating but they are painful, annoying and they limit activities (running, hiking, biking, etc.). About the same time my SI joint pain started, I had a prostate infection that was treated with antibiotics. No prostate or urinary tract symptoms since then.
Avatar n tn Thank you for your help. I did PT for my knee and will start PT for this immediately.
680303 tn?1239984840 Hi Dylan: Come on over to my support group for chronic pain sufferers. It's designed for ppl like you and I...I too suffer greatly.....See you there
Avatar m tn Sometimes when I walk down steps or when hiking and change from downhill to flat or flat to uphill, during the first few steps I sometimes feel in my left knee something like it is being hyper extended. It doesn't hurt and there is no swelling or inflammation. It's just real annoying - and something I very much want to avoid. Sort of like how you hate to hit the funny bone in your elbow or accidentally crack your knuckles.
Avatar n tn Hi all, I am not sure why I am writing down all this. I guess I am looking for some support. It's been almost 5 months now since my high risk exposure. The anxiety gets worse and worse, so I finally decided to go back to my home country to do the final test. I've been tested negative after one week and 39 days. It didn't really give me much relieve. rather the opposite: I got so anxious that I couldn't go to a further test.
Avatar n tn t seem to get a straight answer from the doctor. My husband has had an internal cardiac defibrillator for a year now, without any problems at all. We are planning a 7-day hiking holiday, where he would be carrying a backpack weighing about 10kg. The backpack strap would be rubbing right over the defibrillator site and the doctor does not think this is a good idea. Has anybody heard of, or know of, any type of custom made backpack, which would avoid this strap rubbing?
Avatar f tn thanks to those of you who have already replied, I last took one 5 mg percocet at 6 am this morning and am now starting to feel jittery and jumpy with hot and cold flashes, i plan on reading all i can this evening about tapering, i dont really have any time i can take from work as i took 7 weeks Jan and Feb for a knee replacement, so guess i will have to tough it out. all support and info will be most appreciated, uh oh, gotta hot flash right now.
1135933 tn?1306612016 Thanks for the suggestions. I am going to an orthopedist tomorrow that my neighbor works for...I'm really happy I'm getting to see a well-respected doctor in town. I stopped going to the chiropractor, and they have therapy at this office. I'm looking forward to getting on top of this.
Avatar m tn I have little sharp pains on the high outside part of my left knee. Upon touch I have like a bruising feeling on the high inside of my left knee. And when I bend down I have a sharp pain in the back of my knee and I hear and feel that popping sound. I've been active all my life, sports, ect.. so I've always had pain come and go. I just run and hike now that I'm 37 y/o. I don't have any grinding, locking, or catching.
Avatar m tn Hi! Please help me with a solution for this diagnosis.There are almost 6 months I have muscle Strain as described below and I can not do physical activity normally and I can not strech easily that muscle. The diagnos is: 'Strain ranks 1-2 of the myotendinous confluence of m. dexter rectus, with distorcion, edema / hemorrhage intra / peritendinous at this level.No evidence of muscle indrawing / tendin or collection / hematoma at this level'.
Avatar m tn Because of the atrophy in my leg, I will have to wear a brace for the rest of my life and this brace seems to be the one that gives me the most support. I hope your knee is better and you do not have to wear a brace indefinitely but if you do, I recommend the Donjoy Defiance III. It is a custom fitted brace. Your doctor should be able to help. Best wishes to you and stay positive. You'll be fine...
