Runner’s knee is fairly common in the running world. It can seriously hamper your training or leave you completely sidelined.
This annoying injury can cause a dull, aching pain under or behind the kneecap, swelling, and even a popping or grinding sensation in the knee.
All of these symptoms are most likely to occur when you’re bending your knee while walking, squatting, kneeling, or running. And they’re caused by irritation of the soft tissues or the lining of the knee, worn or torn cartilage, or simply strained tendons.
In this video Mark takes a closer look at what is going on in “runners knee” and most importantly bringing you tips, stretches and advice on how to avoid it in the first place.
