He or she will bend and straighten your knee gently to check for creaking sounds and grinding sensations. Your doctor may order knee X-rays. Although standard knee X-rays do not always detect chondromalacia, they can identify other causes of knee pain.

If your symptoms are severe or unusual, your doctor also may order a computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging scan of your knee. In some cases, your doctor may want to examine your knee through a type of surgery called arthroscopy. A tube-like instrument is inserted into your knee through a small incision to allow the doctor to look at the inside of the joint and correct problems.
Surgery may be the only way to be certain that the problem is chondromalacia rather than another cause that would be treated differently. Because articular cartilage heals poorly, chondromalacia usually is a permanent problem.
However, nonsurgical treatments often can relieve knee pain within a few months. If nonsurgical treatment fails, your doctor can perform surgery to remove the area of damaged cartilage. Once this is done, most patients find that their symptoms improve. You can reduce your risk of chondromalacia by preventing knee injuries and overuse of your knee joints. To do this:. Do exercises to strengthen the leg muscles around your knee, especially the muscles in your thigh called the quadriceps. Increase the intensity of your training program gradually. Never push yourself too hard, too fast.
Wear comfortable, supportive shoes that fit your feet and your sport. Problems with foot alignment can increase your risk of knee injuries. Ask your doctor about shoe inserts that can correct alignment problems. If you ski or if you play football or soccer, ask your doctor or trainer about specific equipment that can help to reduce your risk of knee injuries.
Taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, such as ibuprofen Advil , Motrin and others , to relieve your knee pain and ease any swelling. Taking other pain relievers, such as acetaminophen Tylenol , which may also relieve pain. Using knee tape, a brace or a special patellar-tracking sleeve to keep your kneecap aligned properly. If nonsurgical treatments fail, or if you have severe symptoms, your doctor may recommend arthroscopy to check the cartilage inside your knee.
If the cartilage is softened or shredded, damaged layers can be removed during the surgery, leaving healthy cartilage in place. If necessary, your doctor also can correct the alignment of your kneecap or other parts of your knee to help to reduce wear and tear on your knee cartilage. Contact your doctor if you have knee pain that doesn't go away or if your knee catches, gives way, or looks swollen and puffy.
If nonsurgical treatment fails and surgery is required, studies show that most patients are satisfied with the results. Once the damaged cartilage is removed surgically, knee pain usually decreases and the knee functions better.

The viewer wouldn't recognize the growl but they'd FEEL it. So use your imagination as to what sounds "ominous" to you and try adding some of those elements in underneath your sounds. Adding reverb during the mix phase can also add an element of creepiness, loneliness, isolation as well. One of the things I love about good sound design is the manipulation of the viewer's emotional state. Kris Fenske: Those are all fairly straight-forward sound effects and it shouldn't be too hard to find the props and locations you need.
My suggestion would to be to always try and go for the "real" sound first. The focus should not only be on getting the right prop and location space, but also equally as important is a good performance. You should also note that a Sound Designer is only as good as his library and you should not only focus on what the needs of the particluar project you're working on requires, but also plan on logging away some stuff that might be good material for projects further down the road.
Squeaking, and squealing brakes from day 1.
Also a common mistake in the early years is to take things a little too literally. Often what works dramatically is a "heightened" sense of reality and so you have to be sure to bring lots of different props of various sizes, remember you can always pitch things , as well as different microphones and if you have the time , different spaces. You're wooden stair creaks might be also thought of as - I need something wood, creaky, higher-pitched, slow, and reverberant.
Thinking in this way helps steer your mind away from the literal "wood stairs" and will hopefully open up the brain to some alternate ideas. What's new? Site Map. Site Search. Sound Article List. Originally Posted by Raising3CatholicKids. Originally Posted by Dante.

Manual A Squeaky Kneeler (squeaking on)
Join Date Jul Posts 22, Chief, your post brought a flashback to my 4th grade days, when I transferred to Catholic school. At one particular morning Mass, there was a bunch of noise from kneelers being dropped. The result was, we got to spend an extra hour in church, practicing how to put down the kneelers silently.
God's peace! The wisdom from above is first of all pure,. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace for those who cultivate peace. James Maybe some of our Priests can be held after Mass for an extra hour practicing to say the words in black and doing the actions printed in red in the Missal or is it the Sacramentary?

Chief, it is so noisy during Mass at my Parish, one couldn't possibly hear the kneelers being raised or lowered. If only we could switch annoyances! I looked for one who would comfort Me, and I found none.

We must remember that if all the manifestly good men were on one side and all the manifestly bad men on the other, there would be no danger of anyone, least of all the elect, being deceived by lying wonders. It is the good men, good once, we must hope good still, who are to do the work of Anti-Christ and so sadly to crucify the Lord afresh. Bear in mind this feature of the last days, that this deceitfulness arises from good men being on the wrong side. Originally Posted by maurin.
