Outer Knee Pain

With time, my entire outer leg became inflamed. I stopped running and did some stretches with only minimal improvement. For anyone that went through this, how did you solve it?

      Well, I stopped for more than two months now. What I'm worried is the lack of significant improvement

      On dirt mostly. But I didn't wear running shoes, which I think may have contributed to the problem.

    used to have that pain off and on from random stuff
    i did and still do BOTH leg extensions and front DB squats. it is extremely important to note that these only help knee pain like you describe if you them focusing on the eccentric/isometric portion
    on both. do 8-12 reps on each. DB front squat i do 10 second eccentric then push up slowly. leg extensions are same rep range, and 5 second eccentric with isometric in between for 2.5 seconds, then slowly up again.
    fixed knee pain noticeably but be consistent and it'll work

      I don't go to the gym, unfortunately. It started because of running, so I'd hope I can solve it without the gym. Unless I'm wrong, of course.

    Mine was inner knee, it was caused by an imbalance while walking/running which was caused because my broken nose is crooked and oddly enough my eyes use peripheral vision of my nose to center my gait. Not fixed yet.

      kek. I tried this but it's not working nearly fast enough.

      I had this. Did certain stretches and foam roll and went away in a week

      What stretches? And do you have a specific tutorial on how to foam roll?

        Foam roll the tfl
        If you do it right it will hurt like a bitch until you get used to it
        I'm dealing with this now from hiking
        When I do more than 6 miles it hurts

    my medial knee pain was remedied by one legged calf raises and hamstring stretches.

    sometimes you have to think outside of the box a bit and work on muscles that the pain doesn't entirely indicate or is a rare issue.

    look at stretching everything and try the stretches to see if they work. Proper soft tissue work entails multiple times a day with massage and heat as well. Stretch, massage, heat x3 a day until it stops.

      That's what I'm doing as of now. i've been going over every muscle and tendon until something works. Currently, I'm trying to stretch out my hip flexer and quads, since they feel tight.

      Will try. Thank mate.
