Knee Pain and Knee Popping

I wrote these articles because googling “chronic knee pain” gives you a whole bunch of sites with semi-useless information like “stop running” or “take ibuprofen” or “ice your knee.”  This is the same unhelpful information your family doctor would give you, or, dare I say it, an orthopedic “knee specialist.”  Here are fives causes of knee pain you never see written about on WebMD.com, MayoClinic.com, or About.com, all of which I have experienced personally. Each article linked below explains a stretch, exercise, or self-massage technique you can use to overcome chronic knee pain or knee popping:

  1. Weakness of one of the quadriceps muscles called the vastus medialis
  2. Tightness of one of the calf muscles called the soleus
  3. Weakness of the hamstrings and gluteus maximus
  4. Spasm of a muscle in the back of the knee called the popliteus
  5. ITB syndrome

Let's get started:
