Strengthening: If you are a physiotherapist, then you can start yourself on a strengthening program for the knees, which should help with any symptoms you may have. If you have knee symptoms currently, it would make sense to ease up on your activities until symptoms improve. Other than that, no specific precautions are necessary for your MRI findings. ...Read more
