The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Well I'll start off with the obvious. I am 30 years old and not getting any younger.
I took a long break from disc golf this winter. I didnt play from november until the end of march. for the first time in my life of playing sports i am experiencing knee pain. It is a sore spot on the inside of the right knee(mostly RHBH) and when i practice the motion i can tell the soreness comes from the plant and pivot.
So my question comes to this. Is this pain similar to the soreness i get every spring from over exerting my right arm? This is a pain i am familiar with. As i live in Michigan, every spring the snow melts the air warms and all i want to do all day is throw. This pain usually subsides within the first couple weeks from using those long forgotton muscles.
Should i be worried about my knee? Should i take a little time off to heal? I sure dont want to take any time off, but i sure as all dont want to have problems all year. Anybody experience similar issues? What types of exercises/strectches are good for the knee?
