Knee Pain Suggestions?

A couple of weeks ago, before summer break and the re-start of my running career, I started having some little twinges of pain in my left knee. The first time I noticed it was in the pool, teaching a swim lesson when I was treading water.

Since then, it hurts when I bend my knee all the way, put weight on my bent knee, or rotate my knee. It's not a bad pain, more like a twinge, but I've been noticing it several times a day.

The weird thing is that it has nothing to do with running. Doesn't bother me when I run or walk and doesn't hurt more later.

Sooo.....what do I do? Usually my knee pain solution is to stop running and stay off it for a couple weeks, but that doesn't make sense in this case because it wasn't brought on by running.

The pain is so minor that that's not really the issue- just the fear that I'm messing up my knee. Anybody had a similar event or any suggestions?


  1. That's really weird that it doesn't hurt when you run. The only knee pain I've ever experienced is due to running and I just ice.ice.ice several times a day when it gets bad. Sorry I'm not much help! One suggestion I received from a couple other sources was to strength train. I never did, but in theory it made sense to me that building my leg muscles might decrease my knee issues. You could look into that perhaps? Good luck!
