If you feel like you’re the only one getting knee pain from your running, you’re not alone. Whether you run professionally or recreationally, up to 70% of runners will sustain an injury from overusing their bones, joints, muscles or ligaments in any 12-month period. 42% of these injuries will be to your knee, according to research by Sports Medicine Australia.
Of all of the running injuries, Runner’s Knee is by far one of the most common that our podiatrists see and treat. So today, we’re filling you in on the what, the how and the why of Runner’s Knee, and giving you some practical tips to help you stay healthy and pain-free while you run.
