I hurt my knee by doing squats. The pain persisted for a long time (3 months). When I went to my doctor, he saw my x-rays which indicated that everything was normal, but he suspected a meniscus tear. He asked me to take glucosamine sulfate for a month.

  • Has glucosamine sulfate been shown to be an effective treatment for torn menisci?
  • Has this been compared to other treatments such as ice or heat?
