    I have for at least 3 decades. All due to my baby boy not being able to breakdown pills.

    I think if this happens on a regular basis, it might be a good idea to re-evaluate your training/practice schedule. Ideally, you should dance a pretty consistent amount week to week and month to month. Then there is no big need to ramp up and dance much more often just before an event. Or, if you need to ramp up the intensity, do it gradually so your body has time to adjust. In fact, if you can ease off on intensity just a bit before a big event, you may have more energy (and less pain) for the competition.

    So avoiding putting yourself in positions where you know you are going to overwork and bother your knees (or other joints) is a good plan if possible. I realize it's not always possible for a variety of reasons. But I think it's worth thinking about whether you can strategically avoid some of the problems.
