Nagging Knee injury
Jun 20, 2012
Níall asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:
I hurt my knee skiing three months ago. Ever since then I have a tight knee when fully bending my knee or when standing up after sitting down for a period of time. I went running two weeks (after resting for 2 months) and when going up hill my knee felt very weak to the point where I had to stop and walk the rest of the race.
The Six Physio Guru responded:
......all depends on what you did to your knee. Did it swell, lock or
give way? Is it still swollen now? Is it painful or just tight and
As a yardstick, I'd think if you injured your knee 12 weeks ago and
it's still problematic (the tighness may indicate swelling the joint)
and had to pull out of a race, it's time to get your knee looked at.
It may be meniscal (cartilage) it may not be, but I think you need to
see someone who can give you a good concise diagnosis. This may or may
not involve an MRI depending on what the clinical features are, and
what may need to be done.
