I was at the hospital yesterday because of horrendous pain to see a orthepedic consultant but ended up with a therapeutic practitioner...........which I now realise is senior physio. She manipulated my knee, asked a few questions and then handed me a sheet of exercises which I have been doing for the last 6 years regularly! When I guestioned her diagnosis she explained that my brain realises that I treat my knee with more respect than other parts of my body and so sends warning pains to the area so that I am aware of the damage and danger. Has anyone experienced this type of diagnosis or I am the only crazy person with knee pain.?
