Runners knee pain
The most common type of knee pain is pain around the knee cap (patella) and can come on as load, like increased running distance and time, is increased. A common time when this occurs is when a runner is training for a running race like a half marathon or marathon.
Why? Because if there is any problem with the biomechanics of the pelvis, hip and foot the most common site for pain to present is at the anterior knee as it attempts to transfer load from the core to the ground.
If you start to feel any type of knee irritation during your running training come to Sydney Physiotherapy Solutions so the biomechanics of your running can be addressed before pain stops you running for long periods of time. Better yet, before you increase load on the knee come in and get a full running assessment to get the tick for good biomechanics or a program to address any biomechanical problems.
