Ballroom dancing is my hobby. I started after my children had grown up and at first it was just to past the time. Very soon I got to meet many many friends and in the blink of an eye 10 wonderful years of dancing passed.
The pain started with slight ache at the right especially when the knee is bent for a long time. Slowly it became a bad pain that wouldn't go away. Even climbing stairs also pain. I did acupuncture, tried tui na and visited a chiropractor but no help.
Finally the pain became very bad and I had to stop dancing to rest. I got to know Dr Henry through a friend's recommendation, thinking that I may have to replace my knees. I find Dr Henry to be very knowledgeable and kind. He explained that I have osteoarthritis or cartilage degeneration. Instead of knee surgery, he suggested that I try a less invasive viscosupplement injection first.
Of course I was sceptical initially because I had already tried many treatments, but I am so glad I trusted him. After the injection, my knee pain improved. These days I still enjoy my dancing, but I also learned to take it easy. Thank you Dr Henry for allowing an old lady like me to continue with her hobby. I will introduce all my dancing kaki to you ok! Best wishes to you doctor!
