BiffbarfA diet that battles inflammation will help. As I'm sure you've experienced in PT bands, stretching, and rollers will be your friend. Muscle imbalances are common, stregthen glutes and hamstrings and do plenty of balance exercises. You'd be surprised how much hamstring exercises can help if your quads are overdeveloped. Tape has helped me in the the past as well to keep the kneecap where it should be and it provided instant pain relief. Good luck, knee issues are annoying af.
Working on imbalances, stretching, etc makes a huge difference.
I had pretty significant knee pain and instability in my right knee 2012/2013. I saw a doctor, had X-rays, and an MRI that confirmed I had cartilage damage/missing. A round of PT was immensely helpful.
Fast forward to now. Things aren’t the same as they used to be but it’s manageable. I don’t really ski park these days but I ski harder than I ever have outside of the park and jump off everything.
Keeping up on knee/hip work and stretches really makes a huge difference. More often than not my “good knee” bothers me more with IT band issues as a result of a poor road bike fit.
I’ve recently started to get really serious about glute/hip work again in preparation for this season and it seems to be making a difference already. Overdid it with rolling recently but hoping to get back to it shortly.
Rambling aside…do your PT, don’t get fat because of the knee, and stretch and do your prescribed exercises everyday. I don’t see why you can’t have a fruitful season but be patient with it.
