More Info

Also note that I'm 49 years old and have been in top physical condition. My injury resulted from a day of telemark skiing, lift service, mostly difficult terrain (bumps & heavy powder). Initially I had some visible swelling. I immediately saw a nurse practitioner who advised PFS..just ice it and return to sports. It worsened within 2 weeks so I made an appnt to see the doctor. I began PT with essentric lunges and 1 hr spinning each day. Finally by Doc appnt came up and he assessed 'overuse'. I had an MRI that showed no abnormalities & proceeded with a month of relative rest and NSAID. With some improvement, possibly only because of the medication, I'm returning to rehab exercises.
