Knee Pain

Last week while doing wall balls I started getting a pain in my left leg about 1 inch about my knee cap. Doing tabata squats again today it started again. Any ideas?

Where exactly? Above, but inside, outside of leg? Deep pain? Superficial pain? What kind of pain (throbbing, sharp pain, dull pain)? Does it happen when you contract your quad by default or only when you're standing? A lot of people get patellofemoral joint issues with a lot of body weight squats/wall balls, especially if they have a mechanical issue at the patella (lateral drifting, poor overall patellar mobility, etc).

Re: Knee Pain

Its straight above the knee cap, its a sharp pain I get when I hit a certain point in my squat.

Re: Knee Pain

I'm about 6 months post ACL repair and I'm having a similar pain. Its right above my knee, mainly on the center to outer part. I feel it when I hit about 45 degrees on squat, also when I press on the location. I thought it could be some sort of tendonitis so I've been icing it but no improvement.

You sir likely have some version of patellofemoral syndrome likely from the atrophy of the quad and then bringing it back up to strength after ACL surgery.

You should be discussing this with your physical therapist.


Jeff's problem however I don't have a good guess on because there's not enough details.

Maybe quad tendonitis..
