Common Questions and Answers about Knee problems with running

knee

I had knee sugery 6 years ago...I had problems with my knee popping out of place,and had some floating cartilidge removed...I was told to never do any thing that was considered high impact...I am overweight, and running has always helped me drop weight fast...My knee doesn't hurt so is it ok to run?
so it won't heal on its own because there is no blood supply (it is to the interior of the knee). Do you know if you will be able to run at any point? I run with a few people who had knees replaced and are able to run -- it was a slow process and it took a few years, but they have been able to return to running. Good luck.
Dear DaniG80, Hello! The warmness suggest he has inflammation. It may be tendonitis. Tell him to rest for couple of days, apply ice packs and let him take some anti inflammatory drugs. If the pain and inflammation does not subside he should visit an Orthopedician. Take care!
I am a runner but my knees usually don't hurt while running; if they do though, it is usually a feeling like maybe a twisted knee, and I kinda just 'run through it'. Rather, it usually hurts the most when I bend down for a minute to pick something up off the floor and thereby put weight on a particular knee that is slightly bent. It is a quick, sharp pain that seems to be inside my knee; I thing maybe a muscle or ligament, perhaps behind the knee cap or a little lower.
I'm not a doctor I'm just a 17 year old girl with knee pain but I have done a lot of research. You might look up runner's knee, patella femoral syndrome, and alignment problems. I know what you're going through. Before I began having knee pain I was a runner. As of today I haven't run in about 3 and a half years. I would suggest rest and ice. I know you have probably been told that before and you don't want to hear it again. Good Luck and I hope you get better.
This happens due to overuse of the knee or due to injury to the knee while running (as a result of a wrong foot placement or muscle pull), or due to mal-alignment of the bones or due to flat foot or weak thigh muscles. There is pain on bending the knee especially in the front region behind the knee cap and occasional grinding and popping sound. The best treatment is RICE: rest the leg, use ice packs, keep the leg elevated and use compression knee caps or straps.
i dont kno if this as anything to do with arthritis. for about 2wks now my right knee has been giving me problems in 33 years old and im on high blood pressure meds and the reason unknown why i have it and my ?
I had knee arthroscopy surgery 11 years ago on this knee due to a soccer injury in high school. I have never had any problems with it until just recently. I'm concerned however, because I was able to complete a short triathlon 3 weeks ago and had no problems. I've been trying to find out what it could be by reading info online. Is it possible that all I need to do is buy new running sneakers?
I am 17 and my knee keeps giveing in on me when am walking or running and it keep craking really bad and and in a lot of pain with it some time i cart sleep or walk it gets that bad.
Even if you have a minor tear it is always good to recover before starting running again. Get an MRI of your knee joint done and follow up with an orthopedician. Take care!
one day I went on a very short walk with my husband to the store to buy some ice cream, The next day, my left knee started giving me problems, then sometime the pain would go away. I now can be sitting and try to get up the pain is there until i walk it off. In the morning, i get out of bed, the pain in there again until i walk it off.. it feels like a headache, but i have to walk it off, I didnt pull a muscle, didnt fall. didnt twist my knee..
Do you have any instep problems?? My foot rolls out when I walk and this was giving me problems in my knee when I walked. I went to a 'propper' athletics shoe store and actually spoke to someone who knew the ins and outs of all the shoes. They fited me with a pair of joggers that counteracted my rolling out and I immediatly noticed the difference in my knee while walking.
i began to experience tingling in the arches of my left foot while running along with hip and knee pain. i bought better running shoes(approx. 2 months ago) and while the tingling has stopped while running, i continued to feel a certain numbness in my left leg, which now feels more like a weakness of muscle which at times expresses itself by a shaking of my leg after minimal exertion. could i have caused nerve damage by running in bad shoes which would cause leg weakness?
I had this problem and realised thanks to my physio, that I overpronated when running. This can cause knee problems which is why I needed to buy shoes with arch support which stops the foot rolling inwards. For walking you can buy orthotic insoles but I would not recommend running with these. I use Adistar Salvations to run. A good running shop will check you for pronation before you buy. Also this might seem obvious but are you stretching before and after running.
Allergies can trigger an attack, exercise can trigger an attack, etc, but I've learned to deal with it the best that I can. For a while I was into running, and would average about 3 miles per run without having an asthma attack. I injured my knee though and had to take about 6 months off. I'm ready to get back in to running, and I went to the track the other day to get a run in. After 1/8th of a mile I felt like I was going to die. It was like I never ran a day in my life.
I can feel rubbing and clicking in my knee when I walk. What is wrong with my knee? Should I still be playing basketball or will it make it worse?
Hi Dear, The pooping knee may be due to Discoid meniscus which is an abnormally shaped meniscus within the knee joint. The discoid meniscus can cause problems, usually a popping sensation with pain over the outside part of the knee joint. If there is a popping sensation, then conservative treatment consisting of exercises and stretching can be performed. If these treatments do not relieve the symptoms, arthroscopic surgery on the discoid meniscus would be helpful. Best.
I used a knee brace a played through a few games of pick-up basketball, but thats with lookin like a fool running with a limp. Yes its tolerable, but it does hurt! I can also have pain when i rest my knee on certain positions even while sitting down (i can feel some now as i type with my legs crossed). I only consuletd my doctor a couple of months ago (my fault). She thinks it might be inflamatory so she prescribed medicine. I have never taken it, i heard it might ruin my liver.
I actually had a problem with my knee once. I'd go see a physiotherapist. It could actually be different muscle compensating for ones that weren't working. What i mean by that is, (from experience) some of my back/ butt muscles weren't working so my quads took over and started to pull my knee cap out of place and i had to stop doing weights and running. also do x-rays show cartilage damage, you could have bruised or damaged it somehow as well.
It may be that you do have tendon and soft tissue problems; other problems may be bone degeneration as in osteoarthritis. Stop doing the running whilst you are unwell so as not to cause further damage. Are you wearing the correct footwear to support your feet? Wearing incorrect footwear can cause problems. Gentle exercises so as not to get stiff would be a good idea and a physiotherapist would tell you what exercises and the amount you need to do.
Hi i have a heavy ache in my legs but also a very sore left inside knee cap, but have taken up running for the last 14 weeks on the road. What could it be.
Hello and Welcome to the Senior Health Forum. Please excuse my tardy response. Are your meniscus issues due to injury or the result of degenerative changes? Why have surgeons not been able to repair your meniscus? I did a lot of reading on Cartilage Implants. Here's a portion of an article which summarizes much of what I found: BEGIN Quote: "Cartilage implants are generally the last leg of treatment.
The right knee I sometimes have problems, but it's mostly the left. I finally got new running shoes and have started more leg strengthening exercises as well as stretches for the specific muscles (quads, hamstrings, etc.). But right now, my left knee is bothering me to the point where I don't really want to keep using it for fear of worsening the injury. From everything I've read, it seems to be Runner's Knee, but I'm not really sure.
This happens due to knee locking caused by misalignment of the bones and muscles around the knee. Also, with neuropathy, the sensations associated with walking decrease. This also affects the gait. Muscles and leg cramps can also be due to dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, intermittent claudication due to clots/thrombus in blood vessels, or due to muscle fatigue. I suggest you consult your doctor to rule out these causes.
hi im 21 and have the same problem my doctor refered me for a scan but they didnt find nothing how can they not find something when i no there is something defiantly something wrong my sleep even gets distubed due to mt sore knee and when i sit with my legs crossed and every bend i make my knee clicks carnt find nothing about it tho ??
He did run a fever of 100.4 the other night but now he's not running a fever and still complained of knee pain. I felt around on his tummy and he didn't show any indication of pain and hasn't randomly expressed abdominal pain by grabbing his tummy or fussing about not feeling well. Actually, the odd thing to me was that even with his fever, he didn't slow down in his activities.
I have been having problems with knee pain. The pain is in my right knee but only on the outside and towards the back of the knee. I do not recall any trauma/injury. I have done heat and ibuprofen but those dont seem to help alot. I have been experiencing this pain for a few weeks, with a short span where things seemed to be getting better. I am 29 years old and rheumatoid arthritis runs in my family. Any ideas of what could be going on? The side of my knee feels "tight".
It includes the articulation between the tibia and femur (leg and thigh) and the patella (knee cap) and femur. The most common knee problems in running relate to what is called the "patellofemoral complex". This consists of the quadriceps, knee cap and patellar tendon. What is now called patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) has also been called runner's knee, anterior knee pain, or chondromalacia of the patella.
