I have incredibly junky knees, and it’s been quite a challenge to get them moving properly, but I think I’m starting to make some serious headway. It’s not uncommon for me to spend an hour or so just working above/below the knee w/ voodoo floss, wrapping my ankles with distraction, and forcing my feet into neutral at the bottom of a squat.
I am a physical therapist and I have had more than a few patients lately with your problem. We have had better luck with less mob work with the bands when your symptoms have occured.. Unfortunately if you have an ugly arthritic knee, the bands will not change the joint surfaces. The return of knee pain and swelling or stiffness is not an optimal response to the use of the bands..You could have your knee examined by your orthopedic specialist to see if any other treament may be needed. Try to train around you pain and do activities that don’t bring on those symptoms. Making a joint hurt is never a good idea! Hope it gets better.

Thanks man, that sounds like pretty good advise. I’ll be backing off it for a while and reintroducing slowly. Hopefully I can regain full function with time.
