jumpers knee or??
I'm on my schools cross country team, and for some reason an hour after practice a week ago my knee started hurting when i walk or run or jump.

Pain description:its slightly below and to the right of the knee on my left leg, It kind of extends to the upper right part of my shin. From googling I found that it may be jumpers knee, though i am not sure. Theres no bruising or swelling at all.

Any help from a medical professional would be appreciated.

Hi there!

Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to identify the cause of knee pain in your case. Possibilities include chondromalacia patellae, tendonitis, bursitis, fractures, patellar dislocation, injuries to the internal knee ligaments/ menisci, infections/ inflammations, arthritis, cyst formation, bone growths/ masses, nerve injuries etc; just to name a few. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician or a sports medicine specialist for an evaluation and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
