Aaaarrrghh... Knee Pain!

Aaaarrrghh... Knee Pain!
Knee pain must be the worst injury that I have ever experienced. I can't ride, can't run and it hurts when I tumble turn and kick hard.

I've had knee problems for 7months now. It all started after an epic long ride in the dolomites (photo above is after the final climb). I have seen various different sports injury professionals, and not had any improvement :(

Weak gluts and tight IT Band causing my patella to maltrack is the diagnosis but I have stretched, strengthened and everything that I have been told to do and I'm no better.

I tried doing a 45min EASY ride with my sister on Monday and I've been suffering since. But I can't stop trying because I'm desperate to get fully fit again. Maybe a faith healer or witch doctor would be more help?

Nice one on the blogging platform Dave! (I would have just whacked wordpress in there).

I have forearm pain from weightlifting at the moment (Not started back on tri training yet) - it's very frustrating.

Thanks Chris. The blogging tool is definitely a work in progress

perhaps slaughter a lamb to the gods?

too obvious to mention......apply ice regularly, say twice a day. Really helped for me.
