Subject: Help with knee pain
I'm having lots of knee pain when bowling and I was hoping I could get
some advice on how to correct it.
I'm not really sure what I'm doing that's causing it, but I would guess
it has something to do with twisting the knee at the end of the approach.
I'm right handed. I start on my left foot, take 5 steps, and end on my
left foot and it's the left knee with the pain. I stand between the 2nd
and 3rd dot (the furthest set of dots from the lane), and usually bowl
from the 2nd to 3rd arrow depending on oil. I use a reactive resin
16lbs ebonite semi-fingertip.
I've tried to concentrate on keeping my shoulders square with the alley
and not doing any twisting motion but I haven't been able to prevent the
knee pain. I have a feeling that even when I'm trying not to, I'm still
Thanks for any tips or advice you can give!
