I am a more of a recreational runner with a troublesome knee. What I have is something like an ITB injury. This happened months ago. Got better but still at the niggly stage, able to run on it, even hard as well. Now after a short , quick run it feels liek I tweaked something behind my knee. I have been off running now for over two weeks and been wearing a tensor brace to give support while I do my daily morning newspaper deliveries. I get some pain while cycling but a lot more while going up & especially descending stairs. Fast walking is possible as well as hard cycling though there is a little bit of discomfort while doing that. It feels like at times something is almost giving out behind knee. The physio. sees some laxity in ligaments but not enough to cause problems. For the record there is osteoarthritis in both knees and I am really concerned while I am favouring this knee it is going to get progressively weaker. it is hard to do one-legged 1/4 squats. does anyone here have anything like this?
