Hello Sir, Its good to know that you are physically active and taking good care of your joints. Though to get relief from pain, you can make some dietary changes which will definitely help you. 1.Avoid consuming caffeine or eating green leafy vegetables (palak, methi, amaranth) along with calcium-rich food (milk and milk products) as it hinders calcium absorption. Eating meat and chicken should be restricted in case of gout as it increases uric acid formation. Also reduce the amount of salt and refined foods that you consume. 2. It is important to increase the consumption of fish oil, which is the richest source of Omega 3. 3. Eat foods that are rich in calcium, protein, vitamin D, magnesium, zinc, iron, B6 and B12, which can help in the formation of good bone. 4. Antioxidant-rich foods: Add some colour to your diet and include colourful fruits and vegetables. 5. Cruciferous vegetables: Vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage contain the Sulphoraphane compound. It reduces joint pain and inflammation as it blocks the enzyme causing inflammation. 6. Herbs and spices: Make sure you include medicinal herbs and spices to your meals. Ginger, turmeric and cinnamon are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. You can also start taking homeopathic medicines which gives soothing results in case of joint pains. Can contact us online for best results.

as I can see you are a frequent runner and had injury 8 months back. From the report you are telling, I can make out that you have a meniscal tear in your left knee. These menisci are like cushions for our knee and they provide uniform distribution of the weight. There are 2 menisci in each knee and which one is injured is not specified. Also they have various zones or parts, some of which can heal spontaneously with proper rehabilitation and some cannot. Also it depends on the type of tear. I can guide you further if you can share your report with me.
