my knee on my plant leg aches when I bowl. I went to my chiropractor today, hopefully he solved the problem. he has fixed every other pain I have had to deal with over the years. I don't want to have to resort to taking pain killers all of the time.

It sucks getting old. I take glucosamine daily for my wrist. When I forget for a day or 2, I can tell.

Your knee may be wear and tear or something else. Depending on what your chiro says, it may be worth an MRI. A few years ago, I tweaked my knee. I went a few months until I finally went to a doc and had an MRI. Turned out I had a torn ACL. Don't take it lightly.

Hey, what brand and dosage do you use? Was it prescribed? Is it mixed with other things like condroitin?

i use a light brace i purchase from wal mal. it's black has metal supports on both sides. I have weak knees from jumpimg off of tanks in the army (20 years). I wear it on my slide leg. I use it to easy my mind knowing it will support my knee, still some pain but i think it's because i slid sideways at times or did something wrong during my approach.(pushed off wrong). I'm always looking at other braces. this one is not bulky, and it feels comfortable under long pants. glad to share this with you.

Oh by the way before i go bowling i take two low dosage bayer aspirns. Keeps the the blood flowing. I will agree with general pounder get the knee checked out if it hurts before, during, and after your bowling

Glucosamine often times comes with chondroitin... my chiro said that you should take a dose of vitamin C with it as well, as it is supposed to aid in the absorbtion/utilization. I found one that has all three in one... big tablets though.

Warm up and stretch out carefully before you throw the ball. Also, strengthen the legs with some squats or leg presses. Do them slowly and carefully, and do not go past 90 degrees. As your legs get stronger and more flexible, knees feel better.

When you bowl, do you plant your foot and rear up at the line? Or do you fall off the shot and step to the right on your balance leg?

I plant my foot trekguy. I have bowled twice since going to my chiropractor and I have had no pain. I also like the brace, that extra support is nice.

I have it with chondroitin. I take 1500mg a day. My orthopedic told me to start it after I had an MRI on my wrist and was told that I have tendinitis and arthritis. I use the CVS brand. I also take vitamin C daily. Walgreens brand.
