Knee pain going down stairs

March 6, 2018

Hi guru,

Im having knee pain when going down staircase.

This usually happens the day after my football session (1-2 hours). Please advise what is causing it. FYI i had acl surgery on both of my knees and have fully recovered (1 year since
last surgery)

Hi Fariz

Well, the good news is that the pain your feel isn’t from your ACL grafts – it’s from the way your knee cap tracks across the front of your thigh bone.

When you go downstairs, you can’t control the way your thigh rolls in – because your don’t have enough gluteal/hip control and stability. You need to get this….

As you’re playing footie you should really think about following the FIFA 11+ program and get back into see a decent rehab Physio – no videos from me this time, I think you need a little face to face time..
