riley mcfarlane 5 daysI think I was all of a sudden running after doing not much at all because of 35+ degrees Celsius for over 2 weeks, I did nothing. Another factor might've been rapid growth as I have caught up with my sister & mother, growing over 2 inches in a couple of weeks, let alone probably 10 inches this past year XD. At first, compression, icing & rest have seemed to cure my patellar tendonitis but leaving my muscles in my legs like chicken sticks (hopefully I can get into MMA or working out so my musc...details

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

TheInvisibleLog14 daysMade the mistake of trying too much too early which set me back to square one. Patience!!!!!!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

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

neda.tamas50 daysEgész évben be volt gyulladva, de most már beleszólt az edzésbe is. Muszáj volt pihentetnem. Doki azt mondta, hogy egészen a tapadása, azaz a csonthártya van begyulladva a feszes quadriceps-től. Nehezen múlik, sőt rosszabb lett a semmittevéstől. Ezért elkezdtem rendesen hengerezni és napi 3x nyújtani és el.el múlogatott. Gyógyultnak jelentem magam, mert tudtam már vele futni 2km-t, de még néha érzem.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
BGozza108 daysAlmost entirely recovered now. Lots of help from the physio doing strength exercises and as annoying as it is, resting up and taking it easy is the way to go. Still occasionally sore but so much better.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
Stevek110 daysGenrally recovered via timedetails
RD Tom115 daysStopped running and knee stopped hurting.details
HitnHope122 daysSeems chronic. Hard to tell whether it's tendon or cartilage. Exacerbated by cycling and climbing steeply. Backing off those activities, and wearing a brace helps. OK at present (early 2021).details
