Question: I have Jumper's knee and I am going through the Jumper's knee solution program. However, after doing the exercises, I feel pain in my knee for the remainder of the day. I follow the program precisely, warm up and stretching and all that and feel absolutely no pain during the entire process. I also ice my knee directly afterwards, like the program suggests. Does this mean I need to regress, or is it just because I've been using my knee that it feels irritated?
I'm sorry to hear about your jumper's knee or the patellofemoral pain. Jumper's knee is an overuse injury. Although it is an overuse injury there are a number of factors which may make it more likely to suffer from this injury including poor foot biomechanics, weak quadriceps muscles and incorrect training practices. Yes, you need to regress from doing it and be careful with all the movements that will aggravate pain.
