Hello,  

  I have started to play squash regularly for few months now but keep having knee injuries(pain on knee cap). I would really appreciate if anyone can help provide useful tips to prevent body injuries in general. 

Thanks.

Try stretching. Not a few minutes before a match, but serious flexibility training. I try to stretch for 30 minutes before I go to bed. I wake up so much more refreshed when I do this and can really feel the difference the next morning when I have been lazy and not stretched the night before.

start with your shoes - do they have sufficient shock absorbing qualities.

roby - not sure how much training you have done, as well as your age, and weight - I do know the quads do stabilise the knee.  Here is a link which seems to offer a lot of sound advice for athletes, and this bulletin also refers to knee pain.

I guess to take this a step further, the line of referral would be Physiotherapist, then Orthopaedic Specialist for advice.

Good luck and let us know how you go?
