Knee problems!

I have never had any problem with my knees until here recently! I have been riding the track alot and I am wondering if that could be what is causing my knee to hurt! What is hurting is that ligament in the back of my knee! Has anyone else had knee problem from riding the track? If so, got any ideas of what I can do to keep it from bothering me so much??

I get the same thing if I don't stretch and warmup my legs before going on the track. More the left leg on a ccw track.

try climbing a step ladder using the ball of your feet only for some more conditioning.

My knees also hurt during and after the trackday. I guess conditioning the muscles is a good start. When I was walking around limping at MSR-H someone told me it takes a lot of conditioning ... so, lots of leg exercises. :eh:

Be sure you know what you are taking it for. Glucosamine is a joint aid. I have of heard of it being used for connective tissue.

I'm not sure why something in the back of your knee would be sore from riding. The stress is on your quads which connect in the front and... OHHHH....

wait a minute

Are you riding on your toes more now than ever before?

The calf is made up of two muscles. One connects below the knee and one above it. If you are on your toes more than usual then you may be straining the connective tissue from your calf muscles. Sorry, it's been a while since i studied Human A&P and I have forgotten all the proper names.

Something to think about. Do some calf raises.

1st, standing, then sitting.

To do the sitting ones, sit on the edge of a chair with your knees at a right angle or so. Put a weight on your knees (or just have your husband push down on them) and do the calf raises against the resistance.

That may help narrow down the source of your pain.

this is the problem i have....

What are the symptoms of a meniscus tear?
Individuals who experience a meniscus tear usually experience pain and swelling as their primary symptoms. Another common complaint is joint locking, or the inability to completely straighten the joint. This is due to a piece of the torn cartilage physically impinging the joint mechanism of the knee.

The most common symptoms of a meniscus tear are:

Knee pain
Swelling of the knee
Tenderness when pressing on the meniscus
Popping or clicking within the knee
Limited motion of the knee joint


the bolded is the problems i am currently having with my right knee. it's painful getting on the bike sometimes....but i suck it up and put the hammer down anyways.

sounds like maybe you tore a muscle or overworking it.

it's best to condition the muscles....chiropractor told me bicycling will help. running is bad if you are in pain. says the resistance of your weight while running or jogging may do more damage than good. bicycling is a good way to condition your muscles though.

if your problem doesn't go away, try getting a professional opinion from a doc

I get the same pain, in the back of my knees. I attributed it to out-of-shapedness.

firstly, i tore the meniscus in my knee on the motocross tracks...but, i've ripped out both shoulders and am already an old man at 24.

Anyhow, my orthopedic surgeon has got me on this regimen

I take Move Free for joints, Calcium and Vitamin D for bones, and was taking Vioxx for osteoarthritis.

Strecth before and AFTER riding a stint. Don't just jump on your bike with cold muscles and joints. That's like running a 5K without warming up start.
