    Default Anyone with knee issues?

    Basically, once I turned 30, my knees started giving me issues (primarily my left knee).

    I'm goofy, so this is my pushing and popping leg. Poppping particuarly can send sharp pains through my knee. This pain also sometimes makes me wince away from landing solidly.

    Anyone else have this issue, and how have you remedied it? I've thought about a knee brace, but don't know how well I can skate in one (though regardless, I'm sure it's better than destroying my knee and not skating at all). What about those little shock absorber/risers. Do those actually absorb any impact at all when landing? I don't really see how they could do much.

    Long time ago I had knee issues. Sharp pain, giving way during sport, that kinda thing. A friend recommended a chiropractor. Seems strange, someone sorting out my back effecting my knee? But turned out my spine wasn't dead straight resulting in my shoulders being at slightly different heights. After a few sessions of back snapping and foot pulling, I never had a knee problem since.

    Still don't quite understand the logics of sorting out my spine to resolve knee pain, but it seemed to work.

    That would be totally worth a try. That would be so great if they were able to work me out so my knees no longer hurt.

    hello fellow virginian!
    i went through the same problems...

    one thing it can be is your posture, as crazy as it may sound you might need a little physical therapy to get you on your way.

    if that does not work, get an mri and see an orthopaedic dr. dont bother with an x ray, it is a waste of money!

    Chiropractors can work miracles. I have a friend that studies the Alexander technique he helps me when ever I have an issue. He causes all my muscles to relax and move naturally it is crazy what 30 minutes of fine tuning your body can do for you. I also use fish oil tablets and glucosemine these help these jionts stay loose.

    Ive had 3 knee surgeries and I'm 31. Usually if I push around and warm up a bit it loosens it up and it doesn't get too sore. I went to physical therapy for it for a few months and it did help quite a bit. If I'm at the skatepark I wear knee pads.

    Do some workout for knee strengthening in the morning, worn up knees before you do anything, stretch after, also I use this creme but I'm not sure whether it is available outside EU.

    I have arthritis in both knees and my hip, and I have roughly 25% use of my left leg. Ahh! I take a lot of ibuprofen...

    I just got back to skating again after a knee surgery last december. I had to get a new ACL made out of my patellar tendon. I have to do stretches for a few minutes and then cruise around doing little ollies for a bit every session before I can really start skating. I also eat some of that green BC powder every time I go skate. Now my knee pops and creaks all the time, but I'm able to skate again with minimal pain and soreness.
    I like my boards like I like my women, big, loose, and fast.

    The more I think about it, the more I think I will go see a chiropractor.

    I know a lot of it stems from sitting all day at work. I have an hour drive to work, so I am basically sitting from 7am to 6pm five days a week. That is not healthy for anyone.

    I never hurt my knees skateboarding but I have during wrestling and jiujitsu practice. Glucosamine and fish oil are your friends. Also RICE (rest ice compression elevation). Another thing that helped my knees tremendously is stretching after activities and plyometrics to strengthen the muscles and tendons around the knees.

    Hope these tips help bud!

    I have a crook hip but that wasn't from age. I tend to only really pad up there, cos when that goes I can forget about skating for several months.

    My real killer is Bursitis in both shoulders that i've been dealing with for over 2 years. (If you don't know what it is, just know that it really hurts) I've had steroid injections, changed my lifting habits, everything, but it still wont heal. Some days it's too much to even get out and just push around.

    Oh. And Chiro kicks arse.

    The range of erection drugs is rich enough to choose from. A suitable tool will help to determine a specialist or an independent analysis according to personal preferences. First of all, the drug is selected by what you want to receive. Maybe you need a slow effect and a short result, or vice versa a long action. And if you will use it on an ongoing basis, then choose one where there is. This tool has less pronounced side effects and is also perceived by the body more easily than other drugs.
