RUNNERS: how to cure your knee pain

We recently read this tiny article in Runner’s world…we couldn’t agree more with then on knee pain. We have been saying this for years to runner seeking running coach help. It is the best solution ever it is true and really works like that. Stretching is also primordial, if you knee hurt while running you can stretch it to extend a little your run. But let’s explore together more quad straightening exercise and what stretching to do. To run free of pain is a gift for any runner and you deserve it.

Here is the article:
“Patellofemoral pain syndrome got its nickname for an obvious and very unfortunate reason–it’s common among runners. The stress of running can cause irritation where the kneecap (patella) rests on the thighbone. The resulting pain can be sharp and sudden or dull and chronic, and it may disappear while you’re running, only to return again afterward. While biomechanical issues may be to blame, the cause can often be traced back to poorly conditioned quadriceps and tight hamstrings. Weak quads aren’t able to support the patella, leading it to track out of alignment, and inflexible hamstrings can put pressure on the knee. If you want to treat and avoid another bout with runner’s knee, add strengthening and stretching to your routine. …”

    I agree. Most knee pain is related to our need to stretch better and take care of the quad/hamstring/ITB muscles.
