    Any suggestions for aching knees?
    -had surgery in May
    -have arthritis (ack that sounds old)
    -use knee sleeve/supports daily at Crossfit
    -use Salanpos (I smell like a locker room)
    -don't squat below 90 any longer...yet ;)
    -take glucosamine RSP supplement
    -wear awesome running shoes
    Anything I'm missing here that could help with knee pain???

    Are you using flat shoes (e.g.: squat shoes) for your squats and other weight lifting? Running shoes (unless zero-drop) will change your geometry a little putting some extra force forward, which may be felt in your knee, and the extra cushioning from a running shoe can provide some odd foot rolling which may also load the knees with some odd dynamics. Just a thought...

    No! I'm not! I never thought of that. I hadn't want to invest in Nanos or other lifting shoes bc I thought they'd do more harm than good. I never thought of that. And yes....my feet do shift inside my shoes during lifts.
    Thank you so much! I knew someone on here would have some wisdom.

    You could prolly try a flat shoe before investing (like if you've got some Converse All-Stars (Chuck Taylors) or Vans or something to see if it helps. Also, and I'm sorry that I don't have a link to a resource, my understanding is that in knee rehab (especially rehab of patellofemoral joint and lateral ligaments), depth > load ... meaning that working through a full range of motion with lighter weight and good form (i.e.: get your depth) is a better rehab movement than a partial squat with heavier weight.

    If you're shifting in your shoes, maybe getting naked (barefoot) would help reduce that shifting so that your knee might have a chance to track properly ??

    I'm actually doing the partial load. Still working on breaking 90 without pain so the loads for squats are fairly light. I don't have any of those shoes but have a home gym so I will try "naked" tonight. I just won't be dropping the weights! Lol!!!
