ITBS, lateral knee pain, anyone have this? i was told that the reason i get this more often than most is i have a ‘slight’ bowing of the knees, which puts alot more pressure on the outside of the knee (that tibial ligamant thing).
anyone have this and work through it? it comes and goes with me, but just today out of nowhere it came again and im starting to get pissed.
for anyone that gets this lateral knee pain here’s a website that has some info: http://www.pponline.co.uk/encyc/0814.htm
"Squats can be performed in a range of motion that will avoid pain - ie from standing to a bent knee position of 30?. (ITBS pain usually occurs at 35? flexion.) Back squats, assisted by a partner, can be performed on a Smith machine, moving from a bent-knee position of 90? to a semi-erect position of 45-30? of knee flexion, which avoids the painful portion of the range of motion.
i sometimes get this when i squat & dead, the doctor said not to worry to much about it (this was a long time ago)… but do any of you happen to know of any serious injuries associated with this, for example, someones knee RIPPING IN HALF AND THE LIGAMENT EXPLODING? if so please reply!
need some insight
t-mag needs an injuries forum… just search back pain and you’ll see what im talking about
