Inflamed Plica (Read 733 times)

    Hi everyone, I wondered if anyone has any experience with inflamed plica. My knees (especially right knee) has been bothering me for the past 2-3 weeks. My PT friend said it is inflamed plica and that seems right on with everything I have since read about it. I have been icing and taking ibuprofen (anti-inflammatory dose) 2-3 times daily for the past 4 days and have only run 30-40 mins at a time this week. I feel like it is getting better but I am not sure if it will restart up qwhen I resume running. My question is whether or not anyone has ever had this and if so, how long did it last? I know this probably varies from person to person, but if I nipped it in the bud, can I get back to running within another week or so? All this laying around is driving me crazy... Thanks, Rebecca
      Hi Rebecca, I've never had that but I've heard that ometimes a cortisone shot will help if the ice and ibuprofen don't.
