Thank you both and I really appreciate all that you do and I am sorry if I sounded rude I didn't mean to be, I was just antsy I don't feel any pain at all but I am going to rest it, as in not have it on a incline and today I am just going to do the treadmill and if I have the clicking again I am going to have it checked out,

Thank you!

Sorry you didn't get a response as soon as you were hoping for. Please understand though, that we are a small group of people that work on the site and when posting at night time, you may not get a response from a coach until the next day, but usually other members will respond in the meantime, as that is what happened here.

As Kris mentioned, it would be a good idea to give your knee some rest and if you continue to experience pain or issues, then it would be best to talk with your doctor so that you can have it examined to make sure there isn't something bigger going on.

I am sorry for the long delay in responding. Usually the threads are answered more quickly, but sometimes it does take a little longer.

I would be inclined to give your knee a total rest for a few days to allow it to recover. I would also be wary of reading things on the internet, even when the site is a very reliable one, because sometimes it is very important to be physically examined to rule out other problems which could require specialist intervention. Often very similar symptoms can be really minor, or a more serious condition.

I know that a few years ago when I was a First Responder, I would treat people with injuries - and knee/ankle injuries were extremely common given the type of sports I was covering. Anyway I recall some incidences where I would strongly recommend that they go to the Dr to be properly assessed. A couple weeks later I would see them at the sports events again and they would be in a cast or heavily bandaged. They had disregarded my referring them on even tho' our Accident Compensation Corp. paid for their visit, AND the Medical Centre was open for 'walk-in's, only to suffer the consequences. We often under-estimate the damage that can be caused by ignoring that sort of problem.

I hope that yours resolves itself, but if you still have any problems, please touch base with your Dr.

Take care,
Kris

Thank you for responding, I guess I thought this board was different, I thought it was where coaches answered your questions. I am just going to give it a rest for a week or so not go as steep. We will see what happens.

Thanks but I was tired of waiting for Immediate Help like the title of the message board says so I searched the internet my self I found this on livestrong....

Proper body mechanics are very important when using a stair stepper. Rocking from side to side as you climb can cause excessive strain on the knees and hips. Repetitive bending of the knee, which occurs when using a stair stepper, places excessive pressure on the knee joint, according to UptoDate.com. The repetitive nature of stair climbing can also contribute to overuse of the knee joint; if you have a knee strain, you should avoid any form of stair climbing until the knee is healed.

earlier I was on the elliptical/stair stepper machine at the Y and did that for 30 min at a steep incline 10 and level 6. I finished and moved to the treadmill and while I started out at 2.3 miles per hour my knee was clicking and moving my upper leg differently, I stopped doing the treadmill for a lil bit and loosened up my knee with more bends like on the stair stepper that seemed to do the trick, but I never got up to a speed I wanted. I guess I am asking if this has happened to anyone else and should I be worried?
