knee pain

my 11 year old daughter has been complaining of wrist pain in her writing hand. she says the pain starts by the wrist and goes up near the thumb. she is active in dance and is always practicing gymnastics too. she has been working out with push ups and pull ups and very light weight lifting once or twice a week too. she is also into jumping for cheerleading and recently said the front of her one knee was hurting (below the kneecap). she was fitted for orthotics for her arches recently. i will take her to dr. if the pain continues but has anyone experienced this? we are going to try the ice and rest first. any input would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

Re: knee pain

A lot of people develop knee pain in that area and it is usually due to the vastus medialis not being built up enough. I know this because I've had trouble with this very problem. Your daughter is at a good age where if she starts doing quad extensions and developing that muscle early she can avoid patellafemoral pain in the future. Nevertheless, I'm not a doctor so if it continues definitely consult one.
