Has anyone got over long term (18 months+) knee pain?
I’ve been to 3 physios, had two new bike fits, seen an orthopaedic specialist. Nothing is working. I could detail this further but i’ll keep things simple. I have done every exercise 10000 times, massage, rolling daily, stretching daily, icing etc. Taping, new insoles, taping foot. I must have the strongest glute med on the planet now after all the exercises on it.
Generally hurts more riding outside. Generally fine on trainer.
I do also have the sensation that my right(bad) doesn’t feel as natural/strong/planted as my good leg.
If anyone can offer some help, let me know. Seriously considering stopping cycling. I’ve been riding 8 years, was 4.5 w/kg/cat2 uk. Used to be able to ride 450 tss per week no problem. Now I’m so inconsistent and patchy its like 200 for the last 6 weeks, so naturally my fitness has tanked.
Any stories to give me hope would be hugely appreciated.
