Hey all, i have been to a physio about my issues to try and get them sorted, but no luck at all. I have read a lot of articles but can’t find nothing on the matter.
Basically, i initially got refereed to a physiotherapist because i was having knee pain in the back of my knees, both of them. The pain is usually in the tendons on both knees, so im more than certain that’s causing the knee pain. It’s the tendons on the inner sides of the knee, im sure it’s the biceps fermois:
It’s ruining my life,
Cycling i can’t do as it causes pain in the front of my knee and in my knee caps, walking up stairs hurts my knees overall, the pain isn’t just from the back, it affects the front too, but im sure it’s coming from the back as that’s where the tendons are. I can’t run, i can’t squat, even bodyweight squat, squat stretches, feels like my knee is so unstable and in terrible pain, ive had this problem for a couple of years but it’s only more noticeable recently.
Another thing, recently, the right knee has become worse than the left, although they’re both a problem, i can just about fully extend/straighten my right knee and the pain is really bad and the knee is unstable overall. I have no idea of the cause, or if it’s linked, but my ankles have also been suffering lately, despite having good mobility and flexibility in those areas.
I read an article about get your butt in gear where one of the affected areas where overactive bicep fermois, but i have done mobility work and drills too and nothing is solving the problem.
Where recently the right knee has became worse, the physio said the hamstring tendon was extremely tight, i don’t know why, she believes that it’s not in anatomical position so every step i was walking, i was walking with a slight bend in my knee. I have done a lot of stretching for the knee, mostly hamstrings as advised, there has be minimal improvement in the pain.
Im really lost on what to do, and would love to get back to training soon.
If it helps im 19 years old.
