[quote]the only problem is that my tendons are still shortened
is this what your PT said? Or is it your obervation?
[quote]whenever i bend me knee past a 90 degree angle (heel towards hamstrings), right above my knee cap it "pops" on the lateral side.
Hard for me to tell what it is with certainty. You should ask your PT about this. If it is your patella (I doubt that), that's more serious. I think however it is your tendon fascia latae
that "pops" over your caput fibulae
(the fibula head, at the lateral side of your knee). This is nothing to really worry about. Does it hurt? But ask your PT, I can't see your knee from here.
[quote]I also still have the "popping" of my epicondyle in my arm, when i try to add weight and go through its range of motion. (90 degree angle, etc)
not sure what movement you are describing here. Flexion of the arm? Or supination/pronation of the forearm. Ask your PT what exactly is popping.
If your joints are really lax, all you can do is proprioceptive training
to train the tendons and ligaments in the area to help make up for the increase joint movement.
I have had supraspinatus tendinitis from lifting (10 yrs ago)
and jumper's knee (patella tendinitis) from running.
I took care of it by stretching and deep transverse friction. And relative rest. However, it never came as far as your case. Always rest more when you feel something is wrong. Tendinitis is caused by overtraining anyway, so relative rest wil only do you good.[/i]
