My left knee…
Bursitis is so good that my left knee is trying it for the second time… When I last suffered with it I was prescribed anti-inflammatories which didn’t work and then had a steroid injection which did work.
I have a physio appointment scheduled for next week – but is there anything I can do to allow me to exercise and kneel more comfortably?

Christ ,do none of you care about my left knee? Some of you are like me and have a left knee and even then you fail to care. This could be you next you know… I know there are a lot of atheists on here but even you believers are passing me on the other side – where are the good Samaritans?
I used to think this was a good place. I felt loved, accepted – I thought I belonged! I read the original Picolax thread when it was posted, I took the piss out of Horas beautiful penis, you even poured scorn on my posts, treated my views with disdain – how could I fail to feel part of this community.
Even if you do not do it for me, do it for my knee – it has never offended or hurt you…Posted 5 years agoConan257Member
I’ve knee issues as well, mainly the left but occasionally the right as well…
Basically, I’ve done lots of weight training/specific leg exercises.
Half squats, leg raises with resistance etc.
Physio put it down to lots of miles with no conditioning. Changed my gym workouts from 75% bike 25% weights to 50% each. It’s working wonders.Posted 5 years agoRoter SternMember
I had it two years ago after a stupid crash on the bike. The only thing that worked for me was minor surgery followed by draining the knee for several weeks (the knee was about the size of a football and I couldn’t bend it at all). Funny thing with bursitis is that you run the risk of making it worse by trying to exercise the knee without knowing exactly what you are doing as it can stimulate the bursae to produce even more fluid. My advice would be to rest it.Posted 5 years ago
Totally Kevevs. Wasn’t looking to talk about my knee as ‘blues’. I am only looking for advice on how others may have managed to get some relief and maybe continue exercising. I hope that you (and others) realise that I was being tongue in cheek with my second post – trying to be a little humorous.
Sorry if this has caught you the wrong way.

Ice, but little and often not hours at a time. Mobility is way more important than strength at this point, just flex and extend without pain until the physio gives you some TLC.
Ps my left knee says hi, previously had 3 rounds of bursitis, but currently enjoying partial tear to medial collateral ligament/PCL and possible calf muscles tear/cartilage damage.
