Knee pain

My left knee has been in a lot of pain recently. Not sharp, but a dull, aching throb. Boxing footwork and throwing round kicks off the rear seem to aggravate it most. I've not been in a heel hook recently or anything, so I'm beginning to fear that there's something wrong with my technique thats causing me to damage myself. I can't figure out what, though...

Has this ever happened to anyone else? Any recommendations on what I should do?

Go see a doctor and make sure there is nothing wrong with your ACL or MCL. It is probably sprained but if you tear it... your screwed.

I've had I think the same thing you are describing. If it is the same thing, its not something which would require rehab or surgery, just supplements.

The issue I had was that I was essentially overtraining. My joints were grinding together, and were grinding through the cartilage enough to actually contact each other, it caused a very minor clicking sound on occassion, but most importantly caused a dull throb that occured minutely during, and sustained after a workout for a fairly long time.

I remedied the situation by adding a couple joint support supplements to my retinue. Glucosamine/Chondrin and shark cartillage. They almost immediately helped relieve the ache after only about a week of taking them 2 servings a day. Additionally, the goober at Vitamin World tried to sell me a Glucosamine/Chondrin supplement with a natural pain reliever built in to immediately relieve the pain until the joint repair took effect.

It is also possible that this is a muscular/tendon/ligament problem. If you've got the insurance, seeing a doctor is always a good idea. If you don't, roll the dice and hope the supplements help.

This was a couple of days back Kin, any news? What is your stretching routine before you train?

I get the same pain. I have also torn up most of the meniscus (cartilage) in that knee. I know that mine is from bone on bone grinding. There is nothing I can do other than take supplements and some anti inflamatory.

If there is a clicking noise it could be a torn meniscus. Be careful, the cartilage could get wedged between the joint and lock up your knee. Hurts big time.

Cas8228 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
This definitely sounds like meniscus.

I had previously damaged my meniscus and chose not to do surgery. Eventually my training would produce that same pain you are talking about.

I would go through months of grappling with no problem but the ache, when one night it popped running on the beach and locked like the previous poster said. Wish i would have gone before....

Doctor said the original tear had folded up and was causing the pain. After surgery I feel 110%.

Get an MRI from a doctor, being apathetic here will only cause more problems down the road.
