knee pain at squats

Post by ephs » Fri Dec 12, 2014 6:48 am

my gf has some issues with her left knee since she squats a bit deeper than before. the pain is located inside of the patella, going also a bit upward of the patella like a visual "C" form. she's not sure if it is the meniscus or the medial collateral ligament of the knee.

she squated with the knees a bit inside after pushing out of the hole and not complete in line with the toes. she corrected it a bit and the pain is now lighter.

do you have other ideas to fix the problem? could too much forward leaning also be a problem?
