Patient: I have been experiencing pain in my left knee that just started however I used to get the pain every other month probably five years ago. when I would experience this discomfort I would put one of those pull up wraps. walk around and the knee is new again. now I’m 46. on my feet all day and overweight. now my knee is to the point I can’t put weight on it. I need to go to work tomorrow. didn’t know what I could do to make knee better. I bought a wrap seemed to make it worse. any suggestions?
