Even a light jog is to much for my left knee

Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

I am sorry to hear this. This sounds like something similar to Patellafemoral dysfunction, or a similar inflammation effecting your patella tendon.

An initial injury can unfortunately be aggravated with minimal exercise. If you are keen to continue with sports, then you could get a physiotherapist to tape this for you, but also help you with strengthening exercises to improve the function of your knee and help this settle.

You can continue exercising but I wouldn't push through the pain.
