Pain in back of knee..
 
Hey so I realize you're not doctors and all, but i don't have the time for a doctor anyway - have any of you guys experienced pain and tightness in the back of your knee? I ride regular and the back of my right knee has been getting pains on and off in the back as if it is stretching or has a tightness to it. i ride at 12,-9 and am wondering if maybe ducking out my stance might help some. ive read about baker's cysts and i really cant tell if thats what im dealing with or not. im worried about (knock on wood) really injuring my knee if i keep riding like this, but at the same time, i dont want to stop.

i bought a knee brace today to help stabilize it from side to side as i think ive been loading up alot on my back knee and putting pressure on the inside of it. i honestly dont know if its helping or hurting.

If you really are concerned about your knee, do yourself a favor a go see a doctor.

I'm just asking if anyone has had a similar experience and kept riding on it. I realize that for an actual diagnosis I'd need to see a doctor. Like I said, I really don't have the time right now

I'm also regular and have some tightness and dull pain in my right knee. However, I wrecked pretty hard a few weeks back and messed up that knee so that may have something to do with it.

Hey Eastside - I've been dealing with the same thing. I ride regular and for the past 2 years I've had pain behind my right knee. I've tried all kinds of stance and angles. I was sick about 4 weeks ago with Pneumonia and did not go snowboarding for 2 weeks. We usually go every weekend. During that time off my knee, I bought some new K2 Cinch Tryst bindings that have 3 degree canting and harhmellow cushions on them. The first day on the board was GREAT! My stance is 20 1/2 (I'm 5'4"). My angles are 15 for my left foot and 21 for my right - over emphasized duck. I had no pain and not sure if being off my sore knee for 2 weeks and giving it a chance to heal helped, or if it's the bindings or the new angle stance I tried. Anyhow, I've gone three weeks now and no pain - and normally I can only go about 4 hours and have to come back and ice my knee. So, there's my scenario..... then again, I'm more than likely much older that you = young buck!

p.s. I used to wear a brace also - but haven't since I started riding after the Pnuemonia.

Weird coincidence.

I've been having the same issue on and off for the past couple of years. Only really shows up boarding, but feels like I've slightly hyper extended my knee. Gets better as the season progresses. Couldn't, for the life of me, figure out why, until this season

I sit watching TV with legs out straight and my heels on the coffee table. I always cross my left leg on top of my right. The weight stretches out my right (rear) knee. Football playoffs require a lot of couch time.

I could have hit the gym, but instead I bought an ottoman...problem solved.

Any popping and clicking in your knee? if so where? Does it lock up?
does it give way?
Have you ever fallen over?
Can you feel any firm feeling mass in the area of pain or anywhere on the back of your knee?
Have you twisted and feel something "tweak"?
Has your knee swelled up significantly ever or at all? Have you banged your knee on anything lately?
Have you Hyper extended it?

Answer those please.

Ironically enough I sit like that ALOT of the time.. In fact I've fallen asleep that way a few times and woken up with a stuff knee or knees.. Never really considered it though !

It doesn't lock up or give way.
I haven't fallen over.
No firm mass, though there did seen to be some swelling specifically on the outside side of the back of my knee. It has since seemed to go down over the last few days.
I have planted my foot a few times and turned and felt a slight tweak once or twice lately.
Aside from behind the knee, no other swelling. I don't remember having banged it.

I was thinking it may have had to do with the shitty fit I had in my boots and that I was kind of tweaking and torquing on my ankle and knee when I was riding. I bought Rome Libertines that feel AMAZING so I'm hoping they help in the morning.

Popping or clicking?
What side inner side or outer side? if that makes sense lol usualy i'd just get the person to point.
How old are you and how much do you weigh by the way?
Does it hurt at night? Does it hurt after resting? Does it keep you up at night?

East告de 02-18-2013 06:29 AM

Occasionally the odd crack when turning or bending it, I can't remember if the sound/feeling is more pop or click like.
I'm 26, I weigh 165, and it doesn't tend to hurt at specific times really.. It doesn't keep me up at night or anything.
The pain would be mostly in he back of the knee , on the outer half of my knee, and occasionally a little dull pain above my kneecap in front
