  • Knee problem prevention

    Lately I have been having some problems with my knees. I worked construction for a lot of years and was always beating the shit out of them working as a laborer and a concrete finisher so they have had there share of hard work. Now lately it has felt like there is a pocket of air under my patella and it feels like they are asleep(like when your foot falls asleep and all the blood starts coming back into them). Also my left knee pops when I extend it. I have been iceing them down for ten min. and making sure I warm up really well before quads and hams and stretch really good. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips for me about prevention for bad knees in the future. I was thinking about knee wraps or some neoprean wraps. Any suggestions whould be much apreciated.

    SEE A DOCTOR sounds like you have patella femoral syndrom. its when the knee cap grinds against the leg bones. My knees give away when I am walking for no reason and it feels like what you describe.

      N8, It is possible you made need to be scoped on the one knee and yes all the prevention you need to use will not in anyway hurt you in this program, in fact I urge you to use neoprenes sleeves and wraps over them for the worksets. I do not have any knee problems at all since I do the above...

        agreed, see a specialist.
