knee, leg, hip pain and weakness

Posted by Edward W on 6/28/01 at 07:24 (051718)

8 months ago I experience extreme pain in my heal and
then progressed to pain on the inside,front and outside
of my knee. Now I have developed a limp from favoring
the knee pain, hip and leg ache.

The orthopedic doctor has xrayed and says the knee
looks good. He has me in physical therapy which seems
to be going no where. I am a snow skier and have always
had good knees and strong quads.

I have used orthodics in the past but they are 8 years
old. I have not started using them again.

I think the heal problem may have initiated everything else.

How should I procede?

Thanks,

Kyle

Hi,
I have a couple of questions I need to ask to help me understand the problem better.

What was the previous diagnosis that required the use of the orthotics?

Do you have flat feet, high arch, or normal arch?

Your orthotics are eight years old. How long did you wear them? Have you been wearing them at all since?
