Knee pain symptoms runners

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain symptoms runners


Avatar m tn Hi, My Student Industrial Team and I have come up with a device that relieves knee pain for those with runner's knee and the elderly as well. It utilizes pressure plates on the sides of the knee that help to stabilize and decrease the pain. What's your take?
Avatar f tn 51 yo F, diagnosed with Runners Knee, have been in pain, swollen and limping for 7 months. Dr. says to just keep coming back for cortisone, but it really does nothing. I can hardly walk, I am in pain, do I have to live like this? Is my doctor on the right track? Maybe I have meniscus tears??? It affects everything... walking, sleeping, working. Help!! Also, I have had xrays only. Shows no arthritis. In both knees, although one is worse than the other.
Avatar f tn no other problem I go for check up regularly no any other problem every thing is good only pain in Knees also MRI done no problem found pain in knees and muscle pain in legs it's really hard to bend over.
Avatar f tn If the pain comes on bending the knee, then it could be due to Patellofemoral syndrome or runners knee. This happens due to mal-alignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained while playing), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint.
Avatar m tn I am sophomore in high school and I am currently running track. I was recently been diagnosed with "runners knee" and was given a few strecthes and leg strengthening exercises to help with my knee problems. Well, after a solid two weeks of performing these exercises, my knee feels strong and well. But whenever i have to stretch and put my left knee into my buttox the entire knee feels an incredible amount of pain.
Avatar n tn If it persists and other symptoms occur such as pain and swelling, have this evaluated further for proper management. A complete physical examination must be done to reach a diagnosis. Take care and regards.
15695260 tn?1549593113 A systematic review2 of 25 previously published papers encompassing more than 125,000 individuals revealed that the overall prevalence of hip and knee OA is 10.2% in non-runners, 3.5% in “recreational” runners and 13.3% in “competitive” runners (defined as professional, elite or ex-elite athletes). In other words, running (for the grand majority of us) is NOT shown to be causally related to onset of knee OA. Let’s say that again.
Avatar f tn I have been running 3 miles a day fro 3x a week, until recently because i have been experiencing really aching pain in my knee and if i keep running it becomes really painful like i have torn something, and sometimes my knee gives way too, if i stop running and walk the pain wears off for a while, i have had an 6-8 week rest, but it still hurts when i try to bend my knee, it pulls really tight and hurts, haven`t tried running fully yet, sometimes the knee hurts really bad , it hurts in the back
Avatar m tn Most of the time when I am walking around it feels like normal, however there are times that I feel excruiating pain in and around the knee. I have noticed most times it occurs is when i am bending deep with my knee I.e. getting into my car, going down stairs fast, bending down to pick something off the ground. However it does not always happen when I am doing these activities. When the pain starts the only way I have seen to relief the pain is to straighten out my leg.
Avatar n tn Well, the condom broke and we noticed before ejaculation, but it was definitely unprotected for a short while. Two days ago, he complained of a pain underneath his knee, which is exactly what happened to me in the initial stage (that, and a whole host of other unpleasant pains and aches). But, we are both runners and had just come back from the track. The problem is that I now have tingling and slight pains in my knees as well. I know it is common for sex to wake the virus...

Avatar f tn I highly highly suggest people research them, and I highly recommend them to anyone with knee and back pain.
Avatar f tn He is a tri-athlete chiro focused on runners/athletes and just does some preventative deep massages and ART. My knee sometimes has a little feel but is pretty much in very good shape because of this. My mileage is between 30 and 35 miles a week and I have built up over 2 months. I run 4 days a week for training. I ran 5.5 miles yesterday and getting out of bed today, I didn't notice any feeling. If I twist my ankle around then I notice some tenderness - otherwise I can walk fine.
Avatar m tn Once I got the cortisone shot the rib cage pain and stiffness went away as well as the leg pain and stiffness. I still had the knee pain and pain and stiffness in both shoulder, to the point where I still have difficulty putting on a shirt.
Avatar f tn I feel pain all the way up to my hip and back down to my ankle while I sit with it bent. My knee throbs and I get random outbursts of pain and sometimes it even keeps me up at night. My doctor put me on pain meds but they're not working. And I tried physio for 3 weeks and it's not working. He said we could try a cortisone shot under my knee cap but it will not fix the problem just take away pain? Any idea on what's wrong??
Avatar m tn I suffer with severe pain from knee down to my foot, on the inside of my shin. It is very knotty as you run your finger up both my shins. The pain is 24/7, and i can only stand for short periods. If I crouch down then the pain is worse and causes pins and needles. Do you have any idea of what this may be?
Avatar n tn Hi, I am recovering from a partial menisectomy of my lateral meniscus in my right knee, Although it went great and I am DELIGHTED to be back running again, I was recently informed that I lost 40-50 percent of my meniscus during surgery because it was so torn up. Does this mean that osteoarthritis is inevitable in my near future? I am only 16, and hope to be running as long as I can. :( Is it possible that osteoarthritis could end my pain-free life at age 30?
Avatar f tn It really hinders my ability to increase my fitness level by walking or running. When I look in the mirror I see that my legs (below the knee) are slightly bowed. I often wonder if that might be the reason and if so is there anything I can do to overcome that problem? I would love to know how to overcome this.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a runner and i have been having a horrible pain below me knee on the inside part of my shin. I can touch the part of my bone that hurts and locate exactly where it is... its about the size of a quarter but there in not a knot there and the part about an inch around it is a little tender. This has been going on for about a month. Any ideas on the best way to fix it? Is ice or heat better. I havent been able to run and its killing me...
Avatar f tn I cannot slide on my knee without it popping and locking in a way I can beat describe as my knee getting stuck closed to the point where I have to squeeze it as tightly closed as possible. The pain is 10/10 and I can only unlocking it by hanging my knee over my other leg while lying on my stomach relieving pressure on the outside of the knee. This all started beginning when I injured my knee sliding on wet grass my cleat got stuck and twisted my ankle.
Avatar f tn I can move them around with my finger. It is right on my knee cap. I have had runners knee and had a few falls on my knee in my life. It does not hurt that bad unless I stand or walk for a while. Im assuming its loose bodies/cartilage but im not sure if you can have those by the surface of your skin above the kneecap? What do you think this is and should I see a doctor for treatment? I hope this makes sense!
1603542 tn?1297734997 If you have Patella Femoral Syndrome you should have pain located around or under the knee cap. It is most common in runners. It is one of the most misdiagnosed running related injuries. Pain is often aggravated by bending because this causes the most motion of the knee cap over the femoral groove. I assume your physician agrees with your diagnosis. The treatment is what your physicians are telling you....
20866773 tn?1551913127 RicoDCG   Hi, my name's Rico. I was in the USAF for 20 years (1981 - 2001); however, I was diagnosed with MS close to the start of my 19th year in the Air Force.  Anyway, 4-months after being diagnosed, I was walking around the neighborhood with my wife and daughter. Then, out of nowhere, both my knees buckled at the same time.
Avatar n tn In addition, poor forefoot cushion and poor balance support of footwear can excentuate the pain. Try wearing runners whenever possible and avoid heels anytime.
