I do a lot of off road stuff and three weeks ago strained either my Anterior Cruciate Ligament, or the Illiotibial Band where it joins the knee.
Foolishly perhaps I carried on training almost daily doing around 10 miles and last week entered a 15m mountain race.
Since then its been all downhill so to speak.
My original ailment seems to have recovered, but now I think I've developed tendonitis, where the whole area of the upper knee is swollen, sore, inflamed and its difficult to bend or raise my knee.
Ibuprofen and Arnica gel seems to be working, but are there any suggestions on how to get over the problem quickly? I dont want to be off training for more than a few days.
