tournament-ready knee

 

Knowing that I would need to play through some knee pain* at this weekend’s tournament, my awesome PT wrapped me up with Kinesio Tape this afternoon. Now, not only am I tournament-ready, I feel like an athletic superstar.

*I generally just take some ibuprofen and leave my recurring left knee pain alone… that is, until the same injury/pain showed up in my right knee at a tournament last month (we did win the chumpionship, though). Wanting to fix the root of the problem, I went back to orthopedics, who confirmed that patellofemoral syndrome was now attacking my right knee in addition to my left. He ordered more physical therapy, and the PT diagnosed the cause of all my problems to be overly tight leg muscles that put excessive tension on my kneecaps. My prescribed regiment includes stretching, more stretching, and regular doses of yoga for lengthening, loosening, and strengthening.
