Today I’m going to do something different. Today I’m going to turn the mike around, so to speak. I’m going to let all of you “talk amongst yourselves” (I’m sure some of you remember the original context for that phrase!)
A while ago, someone suggested doing this, so people could share and help each other. It made perfect sense to me.
Before we begin, I think there are four things we all share:
(1) We believe there is good reason to be optimistic about the prospect of damaged cartilage healing, or at least improving.
(2) We accept this will probably take a long time (maybe years).
(3) We believe that getting better requires movement.
(4) We believe “envelope of function” is the best framework for understanding and dealing with knee pain.
Okay, that’s it. You can start talking now. Since it might be useful to have a subject, I’ll throw one out there (but feel free to ignore or modify): What are some things you’ve done that have helped you with your knee pain?
