What is considered to be “Runner’s Knee”?
Runner’s knee or Patellofemoral Syndrome is pain in the front of the knee joint frequently associated with joint stiffness, grinding, popping, and catching making it difficult to run, jump, climb stairs, squat and even walk. This condition is very often associated with cartilage damage know as Chondromalacia patellae.
What causes Runner’s Knee?
The most common causes are:
1) Poor tracking of Patellofemoral joint
2) Weak core and hip musculature
3) Poor foot support
4) Knee joint wear and tear
Runner’s knee is in most cases biomechanics problem related to poor tracking of Patella or even knee cap being asymmetrical or sitting too high in the femoral grove. Furthermore, damaged and worn out cartilage can reduce shock absorption and cause knee pain. Also, being overweight, getting involved in strenuous activities and having injury like falling on the knee can trigger onset of this condition.
Impairments it can cause…
The main symptom of this condition is knee pain, especially in bending position. Activities such as sitting, squatting, jumping, or going down stairs can increase discomfort. Furthermore, catching, popping, or grinding sensation with movement is common with this condition. Finally, knee pain might even cause muscle inhibition and occasional knee giving way which can place you at risk of falling.
Physiologically, the pain often stems from…
- Muscle Weakness and tightness
- Joint damage, stiffness and inflammation
When should I worry?
- If it’s lasting more than 3 weeks
- It is not improving or actually getting worse
- If you’ve taken drugs but it no longer helps
- If walking makes it worse, or sitting and climbing stairs increases pain causing moderate limitation in function
When does it become an emergency?
- If you have pain without even moving it or just with sitting
- If you have knee swelling and joint jamming
- If you have difficulty with balance and walking
Traditional treatments that most try but are not as effective include:
- Drugs or injections
- Generic Physical Therapy
- Generic exercises (YouTube, personal trainer)
If left untreated, Runner’s Knee can lead to irreversible cartilage damage and serious osteoarthritis. Prolonged limping can lead to hip, sacroiliac joint and back pain. Prolonged pain results in poor cardiovascular endurance, weight gain, inability to do sports, loss of income and poor quality of life.
The Self-Test to See If You Have Runner’s Knee
Position yourself in supine or long sitting with the involved knee extended. Gently and gradually contract the quadriceps muscle. A positive sign on this test is pain on the front of the knee in the Patellofemoral joint.
Furthermore, if pressure on the upper edge of the patella reproduces pain, grinding and popping possibility of your having Runner’s knee is high.
**DISCLAIMER**: You may need to see a physical or occupational therapist to get an official diagnosis.
How do you get rid of Runner’s Knee and Improve your performance?
My revolutionary Runner’s Knee Program helps to get rid of tight and strengthen weak muscles, reposition misaligned patella and eliminate pain related to inflammation. It often makes symptoms better very first session and depending on the complexity of your condition, it may take up to 6 sessions to fix.
I discovered this solution while working with hundreds of patients who suffered from knee pain. As I treated their knee pain, their posture, knee alignment and sports performance improved as well.
I found that if I normalize these muscles (and make them strong and healthy) the knee pain, patellar tracking and alignment improved very quickly. In case you were wondering, it’s all natural.
No drugs. No injections. No surgery involved.
I can tell you, not all treatments are the same. This discovery has led to a dramatic increase in how fast my patients got better. They were able to run faster, jump higher, climb stairs and return to sports and work. They were able to be more active, work and live their life again.
Not all traditional knee pain treatments lead to fast results and better performance. And believe it or not, some may actually make your problem worse! Not all practitioners treat knee pain the same. And not all treatments target root cause of the problem and specific muscles at fault. My method is highly unique. I focus on balancing the important muscles (and the entire body), activating synergies to get maximum results fast. My years of experience and research has led to the discovery of this revolutionary new way to stop knee pain and improve performance quickly.
