1.25 years after ACL - reaggravation

Had ACL surgery over a year ago, and things were going fine - I've been running 1-3 miles several times a week, gradually picking up steam. Two days ago I did a pretty intense stationary bike workout, and some light goodmornings (65 lbs). Woke up two days ago with pretty bad knee pain. It doesn't hurt too bad walking, but KILLS walking down stairs - sharp, stabbing pain. Any ideas about what this might be or tips as to how to handle it? Thanks!

Possibly chondromalacia or a patella tracking issue...or both.



Stop running for awhile. Work Glute strength. Foam roll IT bands, hamstrings, quads, calves. Do nothing that causes aggravation for at least a week. Ice if you'd like.

Thanks Mike, I will. Went for a light jog today and it felt pretty good, and pain going down stairs is gone.
