Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome at HCM.

I have read your question.It looks from your details that most probably you are having tear of posterior part of your menisci in knee.As this tear is posterior so this is reason why you are not having pain on jogging .The thigh bone press at anterior part of leg bone during jogging not at posterior part.

This finding should be confirmed by having MRI of knee.Treatment can be done by key hole surgery.Till then you should do following exercises-

Hope this all will help you.

With best wishes.
