      i think Ive got medial plica syndrome, and the inflamed tissue is snapping over the medial femoral condyle sometimes when i squat, i heard this is due to inflammation of the synovial plica, is so what is best way to go about reducing the inflammation?

      Identifying what is causing the inflammation is one.
      The snapping is rubbing of the thickened plica over the round edge of the thighbone.
      Can you get access to a Marc Pro?
      If you are a runner you’ll want to have someone look at your running technique/mechanics.
      This may be the cause of the inflammation.
      Squat technique/mechanics and any skill with repetitive motions may be a contributing factor to the inflammation. The inflammation may be from a combination of movements. The cumulative effect of more than 1 impacting movement pattern.
      If you are using ibuprofen or ice stop. This shuts down what your body naturally does to heal.
      Check out the book ICED for more.
