Recently, I've been having a lot of soreness in my knees. It really hasn't been painful and it only *hurts* when I jump and when I go up the stairs. The pain is usually in my lower knee, and on the insides of my knees (right side of left knee/left side of right knee). When I'm playing basketball, it severely hinders my ability to jump, which has been affecting my all-around game. I'm going to use new insoles for support, and I'll try stretching more.
Summary: Do you have knee soreness/ pain? How do you alleviate the pain/ soreness?
you have patellar tendonitis. i have it too. You need to get a knee sleeve. when you put on the knee sleeve, make sure it supports your knee caps. you're in a stage that is not as bad as mine, but fix it before it gets worse. ice it and wear knee sleeves when playing hoops.
"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."-Michael Jordan
Obviously I would advise to just get it checked out by the doctor! But don't sweat it, my knees would sometimes start to burn at the end of games so I just started wearing knee sleeves and now it's all better!
