    Knee pain is the most common form of joint pain, found in a vast majority of people globally. Knee pain can arise from soft tissue injuries eg ligament sprains and muscle strains, bone conditions eg knee arthritis, Osgood Schlatters, and biomechanical dysfunction eg Patellofemoral syndrome. It may even be referred from your sciatica! For an injured / swollen knee, RICE treatment is usually helpful as the first line of treatment at home.

    Itís a type of hip arthritis that occurs when flexible tissue at the ends of bones wear down, leading to breakdown of the cartilage that cushions your hip bones. There may be inflammation of the hip joint. People with arthritis also feel stiffness and have reduced range of motion in the hip.

    Hi Distancenewbie and thanks for posting and asking for some advice. I suppose we need to consider if the 'knot' is overlying the actual shinbone (tibia) or at least is emanating from the junction of the muscles in that area and the tibia. If so it could have been some calcification due to excessive pulling on the attachment to the bone. Mechanically the deeper calf muscle (the soleus) is the one most active during the impact phase of running. It is assisting to control/slow down the ankle...

    Hi all, I've had a knot/trigger point just inside my right shin bone, about a third the way down, for years now, and it's never been a problem for 10k runs and sprints at very basic amateur level. A physio showed me how to massage it away ages ago but as it's always come back and it didn't seem to be limiting my running/fitness I stopped bothering to be honest.

    Reading through this thread has been great and has at least helped me appreciate that there are others out there that have had similar issues to myself. As a history, back in 2016 I had a run in with severe back pain and muscle spasms that impacted my upper right back and shoulder area, as well as going down my right arm. This pain was severe and it lasted months but eventually subsided. I never did strength tests at the time and was not actively training or anything so I can't if there were...

    Whether you are walking, running, cycling or exercising; you are likely to be using your knees a lot.When in doubt, rest and have your pain checked out. Itís better to spend a little time and money seeing a qualified physiotherapist than to be sidelined for months by an injury that you could have prevented or minimized.
