Runners Knee Pain ReliefCatalyst Chiropractic & Rehab of Blaine, Minnesota, can provide you with runner’s knee pain relief. The first thing to realize is that while running is a very common cause of knee pain, you do not have to be a runner to experience it. Knee pain can be common in runners, but it certainly not limited to people who run distances. Runner’s Knee is a fairly broad term designed to encompass a number of different issues that create discomfort in your knee joint.

Common Symptoms of Runner’s Knee

● Pain that occurs around or under your kneecap.
● Pain in your knee joint that you notice when kneeling, squatting, or flexing, and of course when walking or running. You may even experience pain or discomfort when bending your leg at the knee joint while tucking it under your seat or pressing the brake pedal in your car.
● Pain and associated instability when walking down a set of stairs or down a hill.
Pain is the most common signal of Runner’s Knee, but your symptoms might also include swelling in the knee joint, a popping sensation, or the feeling that something within the knee joint is grinding against something else. And just as the symptoms can vary, so too can the causes.
Common Causes of Knee Pain
● Overuse of the knee joint. If you have done some strenuous work around your house that placed more stress on your knee joints than you are used to, pain could develop.
● Old or ill-fitting shoes. Over time, shoes break down and become less supportive. If you are a runner who has not changed your running footwear for a while, the result could be pain in your knee joints.
● Misalignment of the bones in your legs. Time, age, and injuries are potential reasons for the bones in your legs to become misaligned. If that is the case for you, it could result in movement or instability in your patella (kneecap), which could lead to mild, moderate, or severe knee pain.
