    I got it checked out almost straight away. Had in both knees for close to 7 years. Sometimes it's just bad and depending on circumstances doesn't want to go away. I couldn't even drive a car for more than 10 minutes at one stage.

    The things the worked for me was prp injections but I spent a fortune getting them
    sled drags
    getting off anti inflams.

    Things that didnt work
    trigger point
    rolling
    stretching
    eccentric squats
    acupunture
    chiro
    vmo exercises
    rest
    tens machine
    some other bullshit machine, some quack offered to treat me for free, because they promised they could fix it then I could pay.
    Heaps more I can't remember

    What's tha cause of the pain exactly?
    inflammation of the tendon, muscle?
    is it a mechanical issue?
    is there swelling around the knee Barry when there's pain.
    just interested

    not sure about Baz but I had no swelling myself and no real inflammation. The cause of it I think is these tanks at work I was working on. They are about 80 feet high and have these dome/cone roofs. So walking on these strapped to a harness was awkward to walk on. I had been working on these tanks for or about 8 weeks. The physio said this could have caused it as uneven surfaces can aggravate the knee.

    So far my rehab has been: Rolling out quads,
    having a band strapped around my ankles and doing a crap like walk down the hall way. Hits right in the glutes in the rear pocket area. fuck this burns.
    Standing against a wall with a ball jammed between my knee and wall and raising the leg slowly like a leg curl. same thing hits the ass cheeks.
    Standing on my crook leg and bending to about 15 degree then locking out...ultra slow.
    45 degree squat...not going past 90 ...ultra slow

    I was also strapping my knee cap over the first 2 weeks which helped. My first visit the physio applied a light pressure and held my knee cap over and had me perform a squat. I could do this pain free.
    If all this doesn't help at least my ass cheeks should look better.

    Out of curiosity how much are the prp shots Baz.
    Cheers

    Have had it for a while now. Finally got it into a state where it isn't killing me all the time.
    Managing two leg days every 10 days which is good.
    Maintaining a vertical shin in almost every movement has helped so much.
    Had a period of around 8 weeks initially where I just couldn't train the knee.
    Rest, Ice, Compression every night has been excellent.
    Had to buy better supportive walking shoes, and strapped for a while too.

    Been about 10 weeks now and no quad work. Starting to get paranoid and feel like one of those guys that never do leg work! The calves are popping but really starting to notice the size disappear off the quads.
    Physio wants to give me another 4 weeks on rehab/light strength work before I stat doing squats. Fark injuries and getting old.

    I've had it in my left knee for 33 years now due to catching the cleans all those years ago. Wrapping just under the knee with tape first, then bandage on top would stabilise the patella before squatting. Much more pressure is placed on the patella during front squats instead of back squats, and lifting the heels (as in wearing a weightlifting shoes) also adds to that pressure.

    They have had me strapping/tapping my knee. Just over the top of the knee cap and tapping it so it pushed the knee cap over slightly. This did help a lot at work as I am on my feet all day....(work in construction) up and down ladders/scaffold etc.

    But it feels like I can not fully activate the right quad, like on leg extensions at light weight I can notice that feeling/pain over the knee cap region.

    Does it ache at random times? Like sitting in the car etc
    Cheers
