Knee Pain With Exercise SURPRISING CAUSE and HOW TO FIX IT
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Let's talk today about knee pain. If you've been lifting for any length of time,likely you've had some sort of knee pain or might have knee pain in the future if you'renot doing the right things. Guys, knee pain can debilitate your leg workouts.I know. I've suffered from it, and I know what it can do to your legs when you're tryingto squat and especially squat heavy. So, what I want to do today is first of allcover a couple of the reasons what might be causing your knee pain
because that's going to be important to understandthe difference, and then show you one that I think is really common especially for guysthat train and lift weights. So, if we look here, we've got our boy Raymond,and we've got our skeleton, so what you'll see is that in the knee we've got a lot ofdifferent sources of pain. Now you guys have probably heard about ACLpain and MCL pain and LCL, right. Well we're talking about tears really because those are ligaments that get injuredsports most often. The ACL and PCL are inside the knee.
The LCL and MCL are going to be on the insideand outside of the knee, and basically, that's just one source of injury but we've also gotosteoarthritic changes that can happen where you actually get degenerative changeson the bone, the bone on bone area, or on the underside of the patella here that grindsup against the femur. We could talk about that in a second. We alsohave meniscus issues. Guys talk about that. It's the cushion between the two bones here,the tibia and the femur, that gives us that space between the jointthat can wear down or tear. But I find that the most common injury that we get when wetrain,
our inflammatory conditions from overuse ofthe patellar tendon. So, the patellar tendon, this is what you're seeing right here,ok. And what it does is, it runs over the patella,here it holds it in place, and you can get inflammation of this a lot of times causingpatellofemoral issues, we've heard that before, and it impacts thetracking of the patella when your knee goes into flexion extension. So, as we flex the knee and extend the knee,you want normal mechanics of the patella so you get this glide.
And it glides right in this groove right here.You can see that it's supposed to glide right in this groove. But what will happen is, it starts to getout of position. Well, guess whaté This isn't a knee issue. I've talked about this before,this is not a knee issue. The knee is a train, and this is its track.Here, and here. So guess what happens when the track gets twistedé The knee in the train goes flying off thetrack. So, when you start looking and focusing all your efforts on the knee pain and tryingto, you know, cure the patellofemoral issues,
or try to cure your patellar tendonitis, andyou're not paying any attention to the track, you're way off track. So, what you want to do is, you want to startlooking for the source and the cause of your knee pain because most often, 99 percent ofthe time, the source of that is going to be somewhereelse. And when we look at this, it's either going to be the track at the bottom, whichis going to be controlled by your ankle and foot, or, the track at the top which is going tobe caused by, or controlled by the muscles
Knee Pain Stretches Exercises Ask Jo
Hey everybody it's Jo. I've beengetting a lot of questions about knee pain. Knee pain is actually probably the secondmost common thing that we see next to back pain. And that simply because you can getthat OA in there. And when I say OA I don't mean old age. It actually stands for Osteoarthritis.And you can even start getting that as early as 25 to 30 years old. So when you start feelingsome aching in your bones and your joints and your knee, these are some stretches you cando to kind of work it out a little bit. And remember, once you stretch you need to strengthen.Already let's get started with some of the stretches. The first thing I'm gonna haveyou do is I'm gonna have you straighten
out your leg. We're gonna work out the jointa little bit, get some movement in there and get it loosened up. So we're gonna bring outour trusty belt, or dog leash if you have one, I usually take off my shoes for thisone casue it's gonna help you slide a little bit. If you need a towel underneath you cando that, doing it in bed seems to help a lot because it's a little more slick on yoursheets so you'll get a little more movement. I'm gonna have you put the belt around yourfoot, anywhere that's comfortable, and your gonna bring your knee up. If you need a littlehelp, a little over pressure stretch, that's what the belt is for. So you're just gonnakind of slide it up, get a good bend in there.
And just a little pause with this one, maybejust a 5 to 10 second pause, and then you're gonna come back down. But the movement inthe join is what's gonna loosen it up, so you wanna do this continuously. A little pauseat the top, maybe you can go a little further the next time, and then come back down. Soyou wanna do that about 8 or 10 times, really getting that joint moving. And then stretchingit as far as you can, and coming back down. Now we're going to move the kneecap arounda little bit. This is your patella, they might call it a patella, you might say quot;say whatéquot;,but it's basically your knee cap on top. The key to moving around your kneecap is thatyour leg has to be relaxed. If you're squeezing
your muscles tight, that's pushing it downinto your joint and it's not gonna move, so you really want your leg to be relaxed,you can kind of hit it a little bit that helps those muscles relax a little bit. And allyou're gonna do is your just gonna start moving it back and forth, side to side. That'sthe first one. The first couple times it might be hard, it's not knowing what's goingon, so your muscles are tightening up a little bit, you can push pretty hard, getting thatmovement in there. Go side to side a little bit, and you can go front to back a littlebit. You're just moving it back and forth. If you have some osteoarthritis in there youmight feel a little bit of crunching going
on. That's ok. That's what we call crepitus,and that's just that arthritis in there. You keep moving it as much as you can. Thisimportance of this is the patella is connected to your quadricep tendon up here, and yourpatellar tendon down there. Those, if they're tight, push that kneecap down and you'renot gonna get as much bend in your knee. So the key here is to get that kneecap moving,and then you'll have more room to bend that knee if it's feeling really tight. Backand forth. Up and Down. Ok. So now we're just gonna do some stretches of the muscles.You've got the joint loosened up a little bit, no we're gonna stretch out those musclesa little bit. I'm gonna have you bring back
out your belt, and we're gonna this timeput it around the balls of our feet. So not your toes, but just below your toes, righton the ball there, and you're gonna keep your leg straight. This is gonna stretch outour calf muscle underneath. The calf actually, those tendons kind of cross the knee so youreally wanna get those stretched out. You're gonna relax your foot, and you're gonnapull it towards you as much as you can. Now if your knee starts bending a little bit,then you're pulling too hard and your changing the muscle your stretching. So you want thatleg to be straight. And you're gonna pull. And of course this is a stretch so you wannahold if for 30 seconds and you wanna do it
