I apologise in advance as I am after some cheeky advice but I have a problem with my knee. I have a muscle (Vastus medialis) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadriceps_femoris_muscle in the quad that appears to be engaging a split second before the others and naturally takes more of the strain than its supposed to, particularly when its under heavy loading like climbing or sprinting.
if there are any physios here, can you tell me whether this is something that can be fixed and I should pursue with the physio? can it be attributed to something or can be rectified without surgery? happy to try bike science/retul to see if its a fitting problem?
i have seen a physio recently who said there isnt much that can be done but he is more of a running specialist rather than a cycle specialist (at the time i thought it was caused by my cack running stride but it would appear not)
