    Knee pain: leg extensions? (please help)

    Hey everyone. Quick question.

    Lately I've been having knee pain NOT in both knees, but in my right knee. It only hurts if I extend my leg and flex it. My knees don't hurt during squats, so I'm supposing it's the leg extensions...I did a few searches before asking this question, and none of them quite matched the same thing...so any feedback on this would be very, very much appreciated

    If the pain you are experiencing is more in the front of your knee, it may simply be a wearing down of the articular cartilage on the undersurface of your kneecap which may be healed by some rest or ice and heat application or maybe some physiotherapy..however if it still persists, then it is probably more on the inner or outer knee,which I believe is an injury to you meniscus. This is a part of your knee that absorbs shock and helps with Joint movement. By not getting to a doctor to check it out you could be causing more damage and pain.

    sitting here, its really tough to say that what it is exactly but just give it some time (i am assuming its not serious since your knees dont hurt doing squats) and see if it heals...

    otherwise do go and see a physician ...

    take care....

    Leg extn isn't the best exercise for knee...it places a lot of stress on knee joint. try leg press or squat instead.

    Very true.

    I know this is going to sound odd; however, when doing your leg extentions be sure to concentrate on your quads flexing and not using your "lower leg" to "lift" the weight. You should lighten the weight and flex your quads. It will take a bit of work to do what I'm trying to explain, but in the long run it will help your knee pain a lot.

    Most people "explode" out of the bottom by putting a lot of stress on the knees. Simply "lift" the weight with your quads. Start with no weight and see if you can feel what I'm doing my best to explain.

    Hey everyone, thanks so much for replying.

    Basically, I can't really extend and flex my right leg all the way without the sharp pain in my knee, which means no extension exercises for me, at least not for a little while...

    Bending, my knee feels fine. Extending however, seems to really trigger something, though I'm not sure what.

    Are there any good quad exercises I could be doing that won't put extra stress on my knees? The pain is strange, since it rests right on top of the patella, instead of underneath or right below the kneecap...it doesn't feel pleasant though, that's for sure.

    You can probably still do leg presses. Remember to stay on your heels when pressing. I'm not sure how your knee will react to lunges, they are good as well. Also, sissy squats are great for your quads.

    i would suggest seeing a physiotherapist or the concerned doctor in that case without continuing with any leg exercises since all of them will somehow put some stress on your knees...

    diagnosis is very important and if done on the early stages , it will prevent any further damage to your knees ...the sooner the better

    I will probably go to a doctor sometime later this week. However, I just finished doing some more research on it, and it sound very similar to Jumper's Knee (patellar tendonitis) and in this case, I would just rest it awhile...the pain (like I said) is only when I flex my quad muscle, which pulls the tendon that attaches the kneecap to the tibia...that's the only area that it gets sore.

    Should I just rest it for a few days and see if it goes away on it's own?

    UPDATE:

    My knee doesn't hurt when my leg is laid flat...if I have my leg on the floor and flex my quad, it doesn't hurt. It's only when I elevate my right leg and flex my quad that I get a sharp pain.

    Now I'm a bit confused.

    Maybe stick with squats?

    You might also try foam rolling and trigger point therapy for your knee pain.
