Yesterday I started doing some exercises to try & help with my knee problem (which I thought was either runners knee or an ITB issue). I started doing leg raises and within 1 set my knee was off again. I decided to blow out yesterday.
No knee pain this morning. Decided to ignore any knee treatment. Got 25 mins in. V mild knee pain towards the end. More knee pain 5 mins after stopping. Knee pain gone about an hour after.
While I had more knee pain I tried again to work out where it was. I think my ID of the pain site was out before. It's more the lower/outer/front which on a diagram looks like the top of the "tibialis anterior" muscle here:
So far it looks like one stretch I can do is to put the bad leg behind with the foot on the side pointing in. Then gently lower on my good leg to stretch the offending muscle.
Wish I knew how to help other peeps with these things as I know it's a 'mare. I'll let you know if my plan works for my issue.
