I am literally going through this same thing. I have a 5th physic appointment tomorrow.

I'm 41 and have been training off an on for 27 years.

I was getting frustrated with Karate, and the pain that I thought IT was causing.

I've since been focusing on my technique.....as a Dan rank, very slow and back to basics stances, transitions and knee position.

I've also been engaged in IT band rolling (ouch) knee and hip mobility training and squats!

I have more power and stability in my legs now than I did in my 20's

Its lit a fire under me again that the pain is subsiding and I'm finding new strength in my techniques.

Physio is your friend! Listen to them...work hard on it, and train smart. You'll be a happy man in the end!

Also, humility saves knees!! I've been finding that until my stances are perfect again (correcting some minor bad habits) I've been slowing down in my training and being very cautious.

Just because we can keep up with the 20 year olds doesn't mean we ALWAYS should!
