Get a foam roller and use on hamstrings and quads. Might be you have tight ITB . In any case the roller hurts like fuck and you'll forget the squat painathlete-doing-physiotherapy-exercise-royalty-free-image-1053946434-1563226755.jpg

If you've got nothing to do, don't do it here.
My daughter is a qualified sports rehabilitator and her opinion is

I’d probably say meniscus because when you damage your ligament you lose range of movement, so if you can still deep squat then the ligament can’t be severely damaged and isn’t likely to be causing pain
Which is what I said earlier and yet I didn't go to college for 2 years and uni for 3, getting drunk every night and racking up loads of debt. Modern education huh, I blame tony blair

Morning all!

Now firstly, I am booked into a physio next week to get an expert opinion but thought I’d ask you all as I have done for the last 15 or so years!

Ok so I’ve just got back into the gym properly, but whenever I do any form of squat, either weighted or just if I was to attempt to squat generally, I get a pain on the back/right side of my right knee. I then end up trying to compensate on my left. It’s doing my head in! Any idea what it can be? Anything you’ve experienced? I don’t remember specifically hurting it, though I know it’s been giving me ‘jip’ for a little while, I THINK I need it kicking a ball but not 100%
Check your form. Stand in front of a mirror and make sure that your knees are not collapsing inwards at all. I got back into gym a couple of years ago and was getting horrible shooting pains behind my right knee, sometimes when squatting, frequently when doing lunges and the right leg was extended, and occasionally during other activities. I noticed that my knees had a slight tendency to cave inwards during a squat so I started focusing on pushing them outwards all the time I was squatting. Not only did this stop the pain while squatting, over time my knee has strengthened and I no longer feel any pain during other activities.

I'll weigh in with my own guess as it sounds similar to something I get occasionally when I do a lot of running. It could be your IT band. The link below explains what it is and the treatment far better than I can but it's still definitely worth the trip to the physio.

Interesting! Thanks mate will try that later.

Called the docs this morning to get a referral for MRI to rule anything out

it's what we call in the game a "twinge", rub some goose grease on it and you'll be ok in the morning
