What kind of exercises can I do for my knee. This leg also feels slightly shorter than my right leg. When I walk ---> Run it feels like I'm on a peg leg, it hyperextends. Never had any knee injuries at all. Played soccer all my life, - long time. Trained in muay thai no problems Now its messed up.



Your help is appreciated, thanks

This kind of thing is for a specialist to discuss.

Do you think maybe your hips are misaligned causing the one leg to be shorter? Maybe a chiro can help.

For strengthening the knee, your best bet is to train everything surrounding it - hams, quads, calves, adductors, abductors, etc. incorporating multi-planar movement.  Try not to have any one area dominate the other - ie: over-developed quads w/ underdeveloped hams (not good for knees).

Usually my knee(s) start to hurt when it's time for new shoes.  I get them and then my knees are fine.  Another guy on here had knee probs, got new shoes and was fine.

I just try to start at the easiest possiblity.  Did you get the same kind of shoes you always get?

I will PM this thread to Coach's attention.

Ok, first thing is first. You say you've been playing soccer all of your life and trained in muay thai, chances (and correct me if I am wrong) you are kicking with the same leg for muay thai and soccer, if thats the case you may thrown off your hip alignment which might cause the problem. Simple way to find out is to go to a Chiro and have it measured, usually from crest to toe. Even if it is off a 1/2 " it would cause problems. Now, this is where that kinetic chain that I am always preaching about, ex; If you have a knee problem on the right side and it isn't corrected it will go to the hip, the low back and so on. If you do have an imbalance in your hip it can usually be corrected with a couple of sessions of adjustments, if you get that realigned (assuming that is the problem) you will find the knee starting to trac more efficiently thus cutting down on potential injury.

Oh yeah, one other thing. If your IT bands are tight that can also be a problem. As I have said before, the foam roller is your best friend for pre-hab training for myofacial release.

Absolutely!



ILIOTIBIAL TRACT (IT Band)

Position yourself side lying on foam roll.  Bottom leg is raised slightly off floor.  Maintain head in “neutral” with ears aligned with shoulders.  Roll just below hip joint down the lateral thigh to the knee.
