Seems like I have picked up a rather annoying sx of OLD age.

When climbing a ladder,,,especially with heavy objects on my shoulder,,

,bending my right knee enough to step up to next higher step.

When I straighten it out again to put weight on it,,,raise left leg,,,right is either good or bad.

Bad is when it pops out of joint so weight bearing is a no go.

I always thought when a knee was unstable it was side to side.

Mine seems to be front to back. (top) Thigh bone sems to pop over bottom leg bone.

OR bottom leg bone is slid too far back for thigh bone to rest on in normal position.

Went to regular doctor as part of my yearly check up and he says "ahhh wear a knee brace that will fix it"

problem is they work and brace from side to side but dont do anything for front to back.

Anybody had such a front to back unstable knee??? Any home remedies or exercises to make things better?

Any braces that help front and back ways????

Mine popped out before i had them replaced. Horrible pain. You cant call for help you just have to push it back in

Have they been evaluated? Do they need to be replaced?

When they told me mine needed to be replaced i couldnt do it. I made them.last ten years by taking cosamine ds. My ortho told me to do that. Orthos take it whether they have sx or not. They know it will give them.more yrs before replacement

It keeps your cartilage growing. A simple xray should be able to tell you whats going on

Lyme? Its complicated. Educate yourself.

-Tutu,

Yes on a ladder every day. Sx seems worse at night than morning shift elsewhere

They are all the roll around safety ladders with the handrails and safety bars

but I usually hold on with both hands to use them like a walker if knee pops out of place.

Sometimes carrying heavy items on my shoulders tho, either bulky, heavy or both.

Thursdays are the worst of days,,,we get freight once a week there and Thursdays are 'tough'.

They give me the heavy stuff to put away cause nobody else wants to,,,or even will.


Funny thing is some longer term people dont do freight

They an find all the ounze stuff to put away if even that

Kayak,

I have been taking glucosamins clondritin for close to 20 years

Absolutely miserable without it.

Never had the need before,,,how do I find a good knee doc???

I was hoping to find some physical therapy type exercises that might help.

Actually my knees has been the best part of me as of late,,,

guess being down on them 20-30 times a day on a concrete floor doesnt help them much.

Neither does those 12-15 hour days

Don ... how about if you refuse to do all the heavy lifting?

No job?
