/ Knee exercises?
After going up and down SCNL then Ben Nevis three days on the trot I've managed to knacker my knees a little bit. They were quite painful coming down Ben Nevis the last day, then just walking around was painful the next day. This was about a month ago.
The pain went away, but recently it's come back. It's a bit different this time round - feels like there is some tension there, particularly on the sides of my kneecaps facing inwards.
Ibuprofen seems to be working, as do some general mobility type exercises. Does anyone know some more specific stretches or strengthening exercises?
don't know what exercises to recomment a. because i don't know what's wrong with your knees. b, if i did know i probbaly still wouldn't know what to suggest
however i would try find out what causes the pain... havbe you been going running or anything since your trip to scotland?
avoid stuff like deep heavy squatting in the gym... not sure of you work out in the gym or not though?
maybe get a session with agood physio for some advice.. sounds like you've had it for a few weeks now
Mattking - Cheers for that! Will give some of the exercises a go.
