I kneed advice
OK so I need some advice on what people do when injuries just aren't getting better. My right knee has been bothering me for months. I take time off, it feels better initially but after a couple of weeks of running( and finally feeling like I'm back in my groove) it hurts again. Last Saturday started out well. I was going to do about 8 miles. With about a mile left my knee was hurting but not too bad. I came to a busy road (hwy99) and sprinted across because had a green light that was changing quickly. Well, that was not a good idea. I felt a sharp, kind of burning pain in my knee and could barely make it to the other side. I walked the last mile needless to say. So , my question is has anyone gone to a doctor with knee or other injuries and actually had it help? I feel like I need to do something different so I can start running more consistently but don't know of too many success stories with visiting a doctor. Any advice?
