Hello, My D has been running a lot to get in shape for R-day, and has overused her right knee. The MRI was negative for anything except a little fluid and inflammation. The orthopedist has put her on a series of 3 cortisone patches, and she will start PT on Monday. He has also given her a knee brace to wear to support the knee during physical activities. The diagnosis is iliotibial band syndrome. The orthopedist believes that this will not be a problem for her by July. Does she need to report this to WP or DoDMERB? Can she take and wear her knee brace to CBT? Would she need paperwork from her orthopedist to be allowed to use it? What are the implications for her? Thank you for any guidance.
