So, you might well remember me from such blockbusters as "The Crook Kiwi with the Knackered Knee" or maybe you have been following my sad tale on Twitter, then again maybe knot. Whatever, I got exasperated with this knee that had "Never complained before" (unlike the other one that I had injured a couple of times but was not playing up). As we get older, things take forever to heal (if at all). Weird. Wot to do?

Well I pondered on this Potassium / Sodium imbalance theory and cos it was the right knee I increased my Magnesium and Potassium levels by taking a supplement.

Still not a happy chappy so I phoned my "Guru on the Hill" down the road:-

Ring, ring:

Guru "Yes my son."

Me "It's me Don."

Guru "Indeed, I know this to be true"

Me "How so?"

Guru "You called me eighteen months ago and anyway I recognized your voice. It is, shall we say, distinctive"

Me "Small community".

Guru "Indeed so - I am already feeling the pinch: my client base is tottering"

Me "Well maybe I can help you with that, I wish to prevail upon your services oh wise and expensive one - are you by some fortuitous chance any good with knees?"

Guru "Argh, I'll give anything a crack eh."

(Not being encouraged by said response, nevertheless, I prevailed)

Me "I need to take the car (auto mobile) to the garage in the morning to have its "Warrant of Fitness" checked and I wondered if I could attend upon you afterwards?"

Guru "At eleven suit you?"

Me "Surely, but I will have to leave the car at the garage and walk up the hill. Will I be able to walk down after you have finished the treatment?"

Guru "Well, I can always ROLL you down if all else fails"

Me "Thanks a bundle mate - see ya then then"

Working his magic, he poked and he prodded, lifted and lowered, grabbed my ankle and twisted the leg, spun me around the room a couple of times like the proverbial cat and spent a LONG time rotating the whole leg in various configurations of loops and circles.

Finally he gave the whole leg a sudden, alarming pull just when I was about to tell him that both legs were (almost) the same length. No "longer" (sorry) perhaps?

It's a foreign language he speaks at times but the rough jist of it was to the effect that he had found that a ligament connecting the femur to the tibia had stretched (or torn) allowing the meniscus to protrude and he had "Poked it back"!! Whoa. Way to go!!

He recommended more Vitamin C.

And there I was remembering that the Good Doctor had said that I "Probably had Tendonitis"!

Anyway, feels a bit better to-day.

I am on the "Pirate's Blood Tonic" (Tart Cherry Juice) as of yesterday, so will keep you kind folks posted. This Site has given me so much HOPE. Cheers to all you fellow sufferers: together we shall get there one day!!

P.S. I think he must have done this before: he was just pulling my leg eh?
