Knee pain lunges

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain lunges


1587585 tn?1309432260 If you hurt your knee doing side lunges, this may be a meniscal injury or to the MCL. Pain in the back of the knee may be local inflammation, or swelling. Continue the NSAID's, rest, and ice; if the pain persists, see an orthopedist.
Avatar f tn Lateral lunges, front lunges, half squats, leg press, lateral step ups, knee extension (90-40 degrees), hamstring curls, hip adduction and abduction, hip flexion and extension, toe raises, try all of these under an instructor. I would suggest you to apply ice packs regularly to decrease the pain and inflammation and take intermittent pain killers and go for an MRI and also a second opinion. Take care!
Avatar f tn for the past few weeks i’ve had this pain in my right leg, it happens when i do certain movements, it’s happened during lunges and when i get up off the ground. it’s a tingling kind of electric shock? in a line going from my knee up my thigh. someone told me it could just be me growing or working too hard? but that’s not what it feels like to me but i’m not a doctor so what do i know.
Avatar m tn The other leg is perfectly fine in those positions, suffering from neither the stiffness nor the pain in those positions. There is never any swelling in the problem knee. I have some crepitis in both knees but have had this for 10 years with no pain (basically some crackling noise when going up stairs).
Avatar f tn s helped me quite a bit. Jumping jacks to get you started, squats, leg lifts, lunges and quick feet for thighs; planks, v-ups and bicycle crunches for belly and love handles. Then jog if the weather's nice and my mood agrees.
Avatar f tn m reading online, I see to rest it and discontinue any activity that aggravates the knee or causes pain. I was curious whether I should be using crutches or not, I just don't want to make it worse. The orthopedic didn't say anything about it, and just gave me a NSAID cream to put on it for the swelling and what-not.
Avatar n tn I am just wondering how long it could take for a quad muscle to heal from a direct blow but with no bruising and if the weakness in the VMO muscle could cause my knee to pop and IT band to snap at times and cause pain in my pes anserine bursa. I did see a orthopedic who said he is not sure. X-rays were negative but I have a high deductable insurance so I am trying not to get an MRI.
Avatar n tn Saturday and today right knee swollen and in much pain....Possibly bursitis inflamed. Thoughts? Should I go to ER?
Avatar f tn I couldn't do lunges because it caused severe pain. Then a trainer showed me how to put my foot on a slippery disc and move it that way. Pain is gone.
245285 tn?1220498346 I would suggest you to apply ice packs on your knee joint 4-5 times a day till the pain and inflammation decreases. Take NSAIDs, rest and avoid weight bearing for couple of days. If your symptoms continue then I would suggest you to go for scans (X-rays and if required MRIs) to diagnose any bone or soft tissue damage. Always wear proper shoes and walk and exercise on suitable surfaces and avoid concrete and hard surfaces. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hello, About 6 months ago I started to do some running and after the first month or so started getting pain above my knee, so I stopped. Since then the pain hasn't gone away and I'm getting desperate now as nothing seems to work. The pain is at its worst when going down stairs, steep hills, or when I put weight on it such as in a lunge or squat. It's had periods of getting better then when I think I'm going to be pain free it always gets worse.
Avatar m tn Flex your leg at the knee, place your hands on your shin and start to pull your knee toward your chest until you feel tight. Start with the right leg and hold the stretched position for 20-30 seconds, then repeat with your left leg. 2-3 repetitions especially when you’re just starting out with stretching are plenty for this stretch.
Avatar f tn But now, as of a few weeks ago, a different knee pain has occurred. The other pain behind the knee was gone (I had all of the symptoms of an ACL tear, but an MRI said nothing was wrong other than the previous damage from the MVA). Now the knee pain is so bad that I can barely walk, and have to walk keeping my leg straight, because it hurts so bad to lift it. And five days ago, now if I sit for too long, I can't straighten my leg again.
Panda Thank you for responding. Every Monday and Wednesday, I take "U-jam" and every Tuesday and Thursday, I take "Body Combat" Both classes are at 24 Hour Fitness. U-jam is a hip-hop class and Body Combat is a mixed martial arts class. They are group x classes and are great cardio that focus on HIIT (high intensity interval training). I used to take martial arts when I was in high school, so Body Combat and Turbo Kickboxing are right up my alley, next to any type of dance.
Avatar f tn Recently I’ve been going to the GP over hip/groin/knee pain; nothing came up on the hip X-ray and now I’m waiting for a letter from the hospital as I’ve been referred to a section there as we don’t know why it’s hurts. However recently, along with the leg and hip pain, the top of my backs been excruciating.
Avatar m tn About 5 weeks ago I was trying to do rapid-squats without any warm up (yes, stupid, I know), and got this really sharp pain in my right knee, kind of under the kneecap - in the muscle area of my right leg I've been trying to not run at all to aggravate it, and trying to keep it straight, but I'm still taking walks on it. The pain has gotten a lot better, and it's only painful when I squat, kneel or bend my legs (the least painful).
Avatar f tn Okay guys, over the past few years I lost about 50 pounds, I was 167lbs at age 14 and now i'm about 117-121 lbs (i fluxuate because I'm a cross country runner, so i eat a lot more down and my workouts vary depending on the team). Anyways, since i lost all this weight, my body has changed and i'm much thinner but sadly i still have some untone muscle and skin on my stomach and little flubber on my upper upper inner thighs.
Avatar n tn June 1 2017 summer basketball starts. He got a sharp knee pain one day. He tried but Couldn’t run. Hurt right on patella. Found out he had Bipartite patella. It Hurt to walk. He rested it For 3 months. It got better. He Played his jv basketball season. He Started aau in the spring. In May he got the sharp pain again. Rested it for a month and then tried to start playing on it again when summer basketball started in June of 2018.
Avatar f tn Recovery in the first few weeks was exceptionally fast, and I am mostly thrilled with the results -- I have great flexion, can sit back on my heels, and can descend stairs, jump up and down, and do lunges and squats to 90 degrees without sharp pain, though I generally have an 'awareness' and some soreness in my knees with these movements.
Avatar f tn I find that a variation on lunges helps my hip pain. Mine is from the ligaments stretching, if that's what you think yours is from google lunges while pregnant to get a demonstration on how to do them, and not well, topple over lol.
Avatar n tn Bend your lead knee to drop your back knee toward the floor. Extend your lead knee to come back up. Switch legs after you’re finished with the set. Prepare for step-ups by standing and facing a bench. Set one foot completely atop the bench or use a box and then drive off that leg to raise your body up onto the box / bench. Keep your initial foot on the box / bench as you lower back to the floor and then repeat, switching legs only when you’re finished with the set.
Avatar n tn Recently I have had pain (scale 1-10, 8 to 9) when I put my left leg over right to put on socks. The pain starts in the upper part of my hip and radiates down leg. Left foot at times gets numb. I went to Orthopod and he xrayed hip and pelvis. Said hip and pelvis looks fine. He palpated my hip and buttock. I felt as if I were going through roof. He said it is sciatica and IT band and possible trochanter bursitis. He ordered 8 wks of Phys Therapy, twice a week.
Avatar m tn But my brother recommended me not do fast running or squats as i am overweight and it can damage my brother has knee problem so he has some good knowledge.
