The back of my knee hurts when running?

Knee pain: This can be related to "wear and tear" arthritis, meniscal stress/tears but usually there is a history of trauma, or rarely, especially if there is a mass behind the knee related to a baker's cyst. Stopping running for a short period to see if it resolves can be helpful information. Primary care and/or sports medicine is appropriate if you are a person who really wants to be able to keep running. ...Read more

I've started a new running program and my knee hurts behind the kneecap when running and when going down stairs. What is the cause and what can help?

I've started a new running program and my knee hurts behind the kneecap when running and when going down stairs. What is the cause and what can help?

Patellofemoral pain: You most likely have patellofemoral syndrome, sometimes associated with cartilage damage behind the kneecap termed chondromalacia. We treat this syndrome with strengthening of the medial quad called the vmo as well as the hamstrings and the hip abductors. Stretching the it band is also important. Getting customized running shoes from a quality running store is key as well. ...Read more

Uncertain: This is not clear, but it is unlikely arthritis and more likely bursitis or tendinitis. When you get your evaluation besides examination you have imaging and x-rays and possibly other studies to help clarify. ...Read more

Without : Without an examination, it would be hard to determine if additional tests, such as an x-ray are needed. From what i can tell, you are a young person and probably pretty healthy. If your joints, i.e. Knees, hips can move fully, in other words you can bend them, without much pain, and your leg is not grossly deformed and you can walk, my guess is that this is a contusion, i.e. Bad bruise. You may have some minor swelling and discoloration or scrapes. This will get better with some moist heat. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin will help with the pain. However if there is deformity, significant pain when moving your knees or hip and you cannot walk, then you should see a physician and x-rays are likely to be done. ...Read more

Left knee pain started 7 days ago after running. Dull ache, occasional sharp pain, hurts to put pressure around knee cap or on sides. Fairly constant ache last 4 days. Recommendations?

Heat/ ice pack: I presume you have tried ice pack then heating pad. Have you tried NSAID? It is also possible that you may have ended up with knee injury or just the beginning of osteoarthritis. If the problem persists or gets worse, it is best to consult an orthopedist. ...Read more

Patellar tendinitis: You appear to be describing a classic case of patellar tendinitis. A common overuse type injury tht is almost always amenable to nonoperative treatment. Static quadriceps stretching usually helps resolve this complaint. Nsaids such as motrin, naproxen, or advil (ibuprofen) can also help.

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

I've been getting right knee pain during leg workouts - esp lunges and during/after time on a treadmill. Advil or aleve (naproxen)? Ice or  heat? Suggestions

Why do you have pain: The real question is why do you have pain, especially if it is recurrent. Ice is always the best choice for musculoskeletal problems. A short course of an advil (ibuprofen) like medication may be ok. If this does not resolve with rest and simple measures you should have an orthpedic surgeon or sports medicine md examine you. ...Read more
