Knee pain after rope skipping

I’m a 25 y/0 female student, currently at home for online class. I am a relatively active person, I spend 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week. Last 3 days, my left knee was in pain after quite an extreme sets of rope skipping. I googled the symptoms but couldn’t find 1 that fit. The knee only hurt when I put pressure as in walking on left foot and try to skip/jog (for now, I stop). The pain was on the outer side of the left knee. It was kind of sharp and short pain once pressure exerted but still bearable. However, it affects my walking routine around the house. I cannot slow jog as jogging performs pressure on 1 foot at a time. The pain is quite uneasy.

Hi, thank you for your question.

We truly understand your concern regarding knee pain that you are having. We will try our best to help you.

Generally, knee pain in young adults might have multifactorial causes, such as:

  • Doing a lot of high stress exercise or bending the knee again and again
  • A direct hit to the knee

However, it can also be caused by other serious factors that need further evaluation from a doctor, including:

  • Patellofemoral syndrome
  • Osteoarthritis

You are recommended to speak with our doctor online who can assess your symptoms and offer further advice.

We hope this answers your questions.

Have a nice day. Thank You
