I'm an officer and am on my feet 60 to 70 hours a week. What will help my constant behind the knee soreness?

A correct diagnosis: It's a mistake to start treating a pain before knowing where the pain is coming from. This could be a simple case of muscle strain which can be helped with a shoe insert, or it may be a problem with your knee that needs addressing. (it doesn't make sense that only 1 knee hurts if it's just muscle soreness.) see an orthopedist, get a diagnosis, then you can start a treatment that will work! ...Read more

Bilateral knee pain/soreness. Recently started jogging with intervals on treadmill. Do I keep jogging and work it out or stop?

Change up routine: The treadmill and interval routine may be too much impact on your knees. Incorporate a good warm up routine with hamstring stretching. Also consider trying ellipticals or stationary bicycle which can have less impact. Minimize resistance until you have had a chance to have a formal evaluation with a Sports MD. In addition a formal course of PT with core strengthening is likely in order.Let me know ...Read more
