I underwent knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus a few years ago. Sadly, the surgery was unsuccessful. After the surgery, my left knee continued to swell and cause me pain. But, I tried to continue living my life as normally as I could. I even went back to college in order to obtain a graduate degree in education. During my last few weeks of student teaching, I really struggled. Besides my left knee, my right knee also began to swell. I immediately made an appointment with an orthopedic specialist as soon as I could. After ordering several tests, this professional informed me that both of my knees were structurally sound. He felt that my problem was inflammation. On this blog, you will discover several treatments orthopedic doctors use to treat inflammation in the knees.
