Ok i am a bit concerned now.

Like 3 years ago i used to do Parkour and got this injury doing plymetrics ( Dunno if spelt right)

And got a knee injury (Patella)
So every time i run i wear a support but once i take it off then the pain comes loool and goes the next day. But its still mild.
I'm just wondering can i wear supports for the 3miler and PJFT?
I know, I know i should go doctors but i dont want to waste crap loads of money when i can rub it myself

Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers

Knee

I've had issues with muscle imbalances, causing knee pain, in the past and have found the following website useful:

Although, it would still be advisable to see the doc mate, just to be sure.

I wouldn't run with a knee support on mate I don't think they allow the knee enough mobility when you run but you'd have to check with someone who knows more about it

Haha, Yes i did parkour for 2 years. No parkour doesn't involve flips, That free running (Urbanfreeflow)

Parkour is getting from A to B with speed, control, use your body to over come any obstacle in your path.

Free running = Flips, Showing of for the camera and MONEY,MONEY,MONEY lool

My knee support doesn't really restrict my running just make me not worry about it ^^.

Last thing i want is damn surgery or something then Fail medical

You could try working on your single leg squats, and once you can do them no problem (i.e. 15-20 really slow), progress to hopping, then progress to hopping up stairs. make sure when you do your squats that the tibia (below knee) stays vertical and your knee is inline with the middle of your foot. if this doesnt work then you probably have a more complex muscle imbalance which will need assessing by a physio to be able to correct it. applying ice after exercise along with a course of anti-inflammatories may also help...

Good advice, try and identify your muscle imbalance, you may want to see your GP for a referral to physio in the short term as the waiting times in the NHS can be long whilst you try and sort it yourself.

*text deleted* mate see a doctor if it does not go away after a few years its either tendon or ligament damage really depends on the exact position it hurts *text deleted** because it could be muscles but mainly if its your knee cap there isn't to many muscles there.

just make sure your see a decent doctor people speak good of because i had more than a few problems with my knee after one specialist tried to fix it and ended up walking around with a detached knee cap for 6 months and getting told its all ok
