This tightness can be a result from sitting too much, too much stretching and not enough strengthening or as a protective mechanism to protect the low back.
A proper assessment will determine your specific cause and a treatment plan will be developed to address your symptoms as well as empower you to reduce it occuring in the future.
Runner's knee will affect an estimated 25% of adults.
Some of the most common causes of runner's knee is an imbalance between the muscles of your thigh, weakness of your gluteal muscles, or flat feet due to weakness in the muscles of your feet.
Runner's knee produces a dull pain behind the kneecap that is aggravated by prolonged walking, running, squatting, jumping, stair climbing, or arising from a seated position. You may notice that the pain is often worse when walking downhill or downstairs.
Having pain in your foot or ankle will change how you walk or run. This compensation can lead to pain in other parts of your body, causing knee, hip or low back pain.
Too frequently, the treatment for foot pain is an orthotic. While these may provide a temporary fix, they don't address the underlying concern leading to the pain. By improving your mobility, strength and coordination, you may be able to stop wearing orthotics and reduce your pain.
