    Should I wear wraps when doing full squats if I get knee pain?

    heat should help getting the synovial fluid lubricating the joint.

    you could also try some supports. but i wouldnt go for wraps.

    wraps really aren't to prevent pain, they are to help you lift more

    probably patellar tendinitis. Patella tendon straps might work. I could be wrong though as the exact cause of pain is unknown.

    And check your foot placement and knee tracking, if you haven't already.

    Put your toes agianst a wall. Go through squat motions. Knees shouldn't hit walls.

    Point your toes out a little bit, make sure your knees are straight over your feet and aren't canted in or out.

    This http://www.webs.uidaho.edu/strength/back_squat.htm is a good video and tips for it. In the stills you can see how the knees/calves aren't deflecting out or in.

    extend your leg like a leg extension and watch the movement of your patella (kneecap)...does it move fairly straight backward or does it move toward the outside?
