no stress. i know RICE and have used it time and time again, inclusive of anti-inflams too.
but i am more eager to find resolution rather than symtom management.

tis why i do not like to wear bracing equipment; if my musculature in some way is inadequate, i would rather take time out and train up the ineffectual element, than to fall into a trap of equipment dependency.

but we battle on! hockey tomorra

to answer your Q, it is 'yes' to the second translation.

and sadly, i have been to the quack several times and frankly he cannot be arsed. i will be getting a second and indeed a third referral and even if it means throwing stuff around the waiting room, i will get an MRI! grrrrrr!!!
im getting an MRI as well. i have the same pain. it's one of 3 things i believe.
Torn meniscus
Pattella tracing problem
or hopefully just inflammation

torn meniscus is worst case scenario innit? and what i hear, if you have that, then you more than know about it! aside from the clicks and locks, it farking hurts!

patella tracing sounds like an imbalance in leg musculature, which is easy to do if you are a fit and active type person, albeit in specific ways. the muscles which usually are balanced around the joint, become less so if more are used than others, hence the trace skew. physio should sort that one out.

and if it is just inflammation, then damn! ain't we a pair of robopusses!

i'd like option number 2 please.... (but what the hell do i know!!?)
