I've started wearing a knee brace and have been working at strengthening the muscles around my legs to help improve with my knee pain that i've been experiencing from getting old. The brace somewhat helps, although it might just be psychological.

Another thing that I have tried is to get warmed up real good before hitting the slopes, that has helped me with the pain a bit as well. Hope that helps you!

If your board is in perfect condition at the end of the season, you're doing it wrong!

I've had increased knee pain as well. I think it's just me getting older though. I've noticed that if I do a couple quick blue/green runs with some stretching etc I won't have any pain. But, if I just drop in on the first black I see, I will be hurting for a couple days.

Moving your bindings closer should help you spin better.

I notice that if i'm doing something weird like twisting my body to face forward and tucking my back knee in it tweaks my front knee

I've actually got shit knees (they pop out of socket once in a while) but with some time spent tweaking angles, and stance width I've got it dialed and don't usually have probs.

I also work on knee strengthening exercises, one legged balance stuff mainly. I do notice the difference in stability when i'm being lazy and not doing it

wearing a brace has helped me out alot. i have a torn meniscus and a large cyst under my kneecap. the brace has kept my knee warm, and i havent had to change my stance at all.

Are you getting older? Above 30? Plenty of sports for like 20 years? Or construction?

You can start taking glucosamine, sulfate, and chondroitin supplements.

jogging took out my dads knee's now he has to swim for exercise. Ive stayed away from that and stick to downhill skating and boarding when i can. I dropped some weight recently and its really reduced my overall strains and pains in my legs its amazing how much of a difference 10 lbs makes
