First of all, I’ve recently read many articles and posts on here about the knees and knee pain. Problem is that there is too much information and from what I can tell not a lot of solid information on what causes patellar knee pain. I thought I’d post on here to see if I can get more specific information about my knee pain.
I’ve slowly been getting more and more anterior knee pain. It started about a year ago and wasn’t a big deal but it’s quickly becoming a big deal. It’s the worst after I play soccer or workout. It doesn’t usually bother me while working out. Walking down stairs aggravates it, and sometimes driving does as well. Lately it’s caused me not to fully use my quads while doing squats because of the pain.
If I press on my knee directly below the patella then that causes pain, everything else is fine. I don’t have any cracking, popping, grinding, or anything else. If I stay off it for a couple weeks then it works fine.
I’d like to hear any sound suggestions. If you don’t know what you’re talking about then keep it to yourself, this subject is difficult enough.
