The above might sound contradictory, but exactly two weeks after dislocating my right knee, I managed to power walk for a whole fifteen minutes without any problems. A mate had organised a night out in a Highgate pub. I looked up the times of the buses on my London Bus Checker App and saw that no buses were due (sort of forgotten about the roads works on the Great North Road). Since I didn’t want to miss the evening, I decided to walk there through Highgate Woods.
All went to plan. I’m grateful to a recently retired GP friend of mine who gave the following advice shortly after I dislocated the knee: need to keep using it – gentle exercise- otherwise it will tense up.
