I just purchased a bandage for my knee yesterday. It velcroes around the top and bottom so I can set the amount of pressure myself. The bandage also builds up warmth around the area.
Please note the text in the upper picrure pointing to the exact location of the knee pain right behind the patella (knee cap). The pain is behind the upper part of the knee cap.
I took a bike ride this A.M. and after about two miles the pain started coming back so I abandoned the ride so as not to injure it more. The injury I believe is just an overuse injury.
Do you think if I ice the knee and apply hot packs off and on or is it too late for that? The injury occurred Sunday on my 54 mile ride.
Thanks for any help.
P.S. I might be getting some Speedplay x5's today as they allow more float than my SPD's.
I might also get some kneesaver pedal spacers to allow my feet to not hit the bike as I angle my feet outward more as that is their natural ducky way. What thinkest thou, knaves?
