I'm still experimenting and finding supplements and different things to help, and all the tips in this article are super! I have noticed that I have more energy since I started walking every day. I do 2 10 or 15 min. walks each day, and I'm slowing building up to a longer walking time and shorter minutes/mile time.
I take Tart Cherry and Turmeric capsules (I get them through Puritan's Pride) for inflammation, Calcium and fish oil supplements for neuropathy and I use several Nikken magnetic products too. I always have a pair of magnetic insoles in my shoes, and I use the battery operated hand-held palm mag for localized relief.
Ice always helps, of course, and sometimes at night I heat up the "rice bag" and put that on my knee.
I need to do more stretching, so I plan on using my Stretch Out Strap I used in PT after meniscus surgery. I don't know why, but the knee I had repaired hurts a lot (my left knee) and my right knee, with an un-repaired meniscus tear doesn't bother me at all. The Ortho Doc even did micro abriasion on the left knee, but it gives me fits!
