Runner’s knee is a common, yet treatable, injury that many runners often face.
Strengthening your quadriceps will improve patellar tracking, and stretching your hamstrings and calves will prevent overpronation – both of which will help relieve your pain.
I personally have been dealing with runner’s knee since upping my mileage at boot camp. I am treating this with a combination of ice, foam rolling prior to boot camp, more stretching prior to running, and targeted massage. As a result, I have been able to increase mileage, build strength, and gain a new sense of freedom.
See you out on the trails!
