Discoloration in a honeycomb pattern on the front and inside of my knee.
After 25 years of positive results from chiropractic, I accepted a substitute for my regular doctor and he asked if I wanted to take a risk in connection with my arthritic knee adjustment. I said OK. He is no longer there and no one can tell me what happened and if anything can be done.
The knee condition appeared within a day or two of the adjustment and has been there since Oct., 2012. There isn't any additional pain and I am just curious.
I have been to my primary care MD, had an arterial ultrasound, and been to a vascular surgeon who said nothing is wrong with my circulation. All said they had never seen anything like it and "didn't have a clue." The area is about the size of a jacket elbow patch and covers the front and inside of the right knee. The color is mostly dark blue (some reddish) and is in a honeycomb pattern, like connected hexagons. It is just slightly swollen. It is under the skin. Thanks for any direction you can give me.
Frankly, Virginia, I'm at loss too. It's not unreasonable to assume it may be related to the treatment. Did he use a topical cream?
If you have no pain, and the vascular causes have been eliminated, I'd just get on with life.
Include plenty of anti inflammatory foods like freshly ground flax seed and fatty fish for their omega 3 in your diet.
Research shows the most effective treatment, by the way, for an arthritic knee, is weight loss, if you're overweight.
Sorry I can't be of more help.
