This is what I'm guessing I have. Seeing an actual fizz on Friday.

Can this type of injury be caused by wearing insoles or having a bike seat too low?

Boing for CT

I think Lateral Collateral injuries come from a loaded twist or a dynamic hit on the inside of the knee. But CT is your man for mode of injury, and you can back track from there.

Low bike seat sounds very unlikely to me - more likely to have issues with your Patellar tendon

Yeah. I'm thinking now I can do a bit more research at home.

At the same time tho, the pain starts at the top of the patella, tracking down the lateral aspect rather than straight down the middle.

Do you get it when cycling or running.
And do you have cleats?

Yes I have cleats. Don't get it at all when cycling, just running. Started off only on descending and now it's constant including today when I've done nothing.

Hmmm - I suspect a dynamic twist - but CT will have a better idea!

Got something to say?
