manne7 daysHaven't felt anything the last sessions, so I think I've beat the knee pain for this time ;-)details
TheInvisibleLog7 daysCame good almost instantaneously after a 2 hour car trip. Suggests the problem is a mobile piece of cartilage flotsam.details
Dehydrated8 daysrested 1 weekdetails
Swisscheese8 daysRunning through the injury, knee tape, massage, ultra sound on the bursa, Bemer and especially 3x400mg/day Ibuprofen made the problem go away. The reason for the problem is probably a stiff hip and not so well working butt muscles. So I shall more stretch and strengthen this region.details

tcut13 daysIce/anti-inflammatories & rest!details
Sly Chimera15 daysIt's really pretty much done. Stretching, icing and foam roller helped...probably foam roller was the most effective (I don't know why I say that excepting it's the most uncomfortable).details
Frozen Fries16 daysThe heel cushions put my knees in a different biomechanical position that wasn't working. details
evancuster16 daysRest and local NSAID gel seemed to work. I thought it might have taken longer to get over it.details

TheInvisibleLog28 daysThe more acute pain gradually subsided, leaving residual soreness and some limited mobility. Icing and ibuprofen treatment seemed to help.details
ljd928 daysHaven't had the issue for awhile now. Haven't been running as much/as much on concrete.details
cktrahan29 daysThe knee started to come around and feel better once I started running a little faster. I think part of the problem was an altered stride and part of it was bad shoes. It's still tender and I have to keep an eye on it but it's not constantly in pain anymore.details
tcut30 daysEarly ibuprofen & rest deifinitely helped.details
Jacques Booysen30 daysdetails
Rich30 daysSlowly increasing the running, stretching and quad exercises seams to have sorted it after an initial period of rest.details

dlevine35 daysStrength is slowly coming back after a combo of not using it in stress situations, rest, and weight training. details
franklinwood36 days17 Sept: Took a month of rest on the knee and it worked. No problems in the knees. I think it was caused by overuse with trainings and races. details

matzah ball37 dayschronic overuse injury not going compeletely away, but if its managable its not going to be listed as injurydetails
O-ing38 dayscore stability stuff helped - not limping after the last two runs so I think we'll say temporary recoverydetails
acejase38 dayseverything is back related and often sitting related. suspect tight back pulling on quad which pulled on patella tendon. last 20% or so took a long while to recover. managing this still ongoing.details

swolfe64 dayssuperfeet inserts and hip exercises to help with realignment of the bones caused the knee to track betterdetails
austrianmike64 daysKnee support bandage still used when running longer events and for full 90min football matches. No more significant pain thoughdetails
entrenando12367 days11/24 - hasn't really bugged me so I guess the issue is gone.details
ken70 daysquad stretching and warmup pants are good. I think initially I did too much hamstring and not enough quad stretching which led to imbalance/hyperextensions and didn't help the original problem. I had noticed the quad getting gradually tighter in late summer/fall.details
mmurph70 daysImproved hip flexibility. Used patellar tendon straps. Heat before workouts, ice after, prescription Naproxen for both knees and groin injury. Staying away from cycling for awhile. details

DuJ104 dayslots of icing, used foam roller, xtrain with cycling and swimming. no running for 2 weeks. massage therapy, chiropractor adjustments, laser treatments helped with recovery. castor oil packs helped reduce swelling. post-recovery:Physio 2x a week for 6 weeks. details
lazydave109 daysdetails
Pia W110 daysProbably caused by too tight quadriceps in combination with 90 degree bending of the knee during biking (in contrast to much less of an angle during running). As always:DO NOT SKIP STETCHING!!!details
