I injured my knee after my running where i did plyometric jumping exercises around sit up bench. One of the jump i landed a bit awkward. Bummer!

MRI scan shows knee meniscus tear, chondromalacia ( i googled it known as runner knee) and healed ACL (my old injury). visit orthopaedic doctor recommend physio first and probably surgery if condition not improve.

 

Agree with the rest, even the video you posted, the doc also say surgery is not necessary for most cases. Quite interesting, and agree with what I read from the net, running don't really contribute much to the degraded knees from studies. Both runners and non-runners have it. And good thing runners have less osteoarthritis , cos impact exercises are good for the bone density.

 

Edit PS: You wanna try minimalist running? Two anecdote examples, both I know personally, are my colleague and a barefoot runner in Seng Kang.  Both love running since the army or school days, and ran till adulthood. One day my colleague stopped running, coz he said his knee spoilt liao, cannot run. That was before I began running. After I started running for health, and intro him mininalist running, he began running in the stadium barefoot.  Since then to now, almost 10 years and he is still running and a better runner.

The seng kang barefoot runner shared his story, similarly, stopped running a few years back due to knee problem. Now he even qualified for Boston marathon and ran it before the pandemic happened.

was reading about Vit D3 as a good defensive supplement against Covid but building immunity.

Then the Vit K2 MK7 got highlighted as well. Based on a very typical SEA Chinese diet, we prob don't get sufficient K2 MK7. But if you are a natto fanatic, then you have no need to read further.

You can go read about it.

Thank goodness I bought a set of bowflex dumbells.   That, plus a TRX, exercise bands, chin up bar in my condo exercise corner should be enough for me 

Bowflex not cheap. Hopefully they don't close off private and public fitness corners like in CB period.

you are so zoon. I am really staying in an old mature estate. The strollers/runners here generally above 60 years old. A few younger people here and there but no chio bu. 😥

But move to SK or punggol for chiobu runners, I'd rather not. Quite like my old mature estate so far. In a few more years, I might be one of those lao kok kok strolling on the PCN.

this have to credit to govt for setting up of these nice and affordable gyms around the neighbourhoods

all looks good except for the ones with blue lights. Old eyes cannot get used to working out in blue lighting. Look into mirror and will see an Avatar blue creature or a Smurf staring back at me.

Visit physio 1st.

Yesterday, I had a short session with physio.  I could see the difference immediately.

The injury could be triggered by other problem.

I have seen them working with my wife and son. They are beneficial. But expensive😅. Those public sessions not subsidized.

Right now my focus is on strengthening of muscle surrounding my injured knee. Quad, hamstring, glutes, calf etc. Visit physio and exercise to get my knee back to shape. Surgery will be last option as if not done well is non reworkable.

Only when injured i noticed how much force we put on our knee when we run. you can feel every bit of the pressure.

Minimalist running? never try before as got phobia might step on something 😨. Heard is better for joint and leg muscles/ligament.

I always thought that my stiff back is due to strong back muscle.

I was wrong.  My C4 & C5 nerve is compressed due to sitting down too long.
