Healthy Runner Podcast

Sep 10, 2020

Do you get stiff and achy knees with running?

Does your knee cap pain get worse when you go up and down stairs or when you try to do squats?

Are you wondering if you'll be able to run without knee pain again?

We flip the roles for today’s episode. I was fortunate enough to be a guest on the RunBuzz Podcast and had the opportunity to share my knowledge on Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, otherwise known as "Runner's Knee"

In this episode we share with you an explanation of what Runner's Knee is, who is most likely to experience it, what causes it, prevention tips, and how you can kick it to the curb and get back to running at your best! đź’Ş

Duane and Steve also talk about:

- Do you need an MRI to properly diagnose your knee pain?

- What medical provider should you book an appointment with in order to start feeling better today

- Should you wear a knee brace when you run?

- The best exercises to do to get rid of your knee pain

This deep dive episode on Runner’s Knee will provide you the knowledge to begin to train smarter and prevent your knee pain from coming back!

I hope it gives you a tip or two that you can add to your healthy runner toolkit! 

Thank you for taking the time to listen to this episode and I hope it helped to give you some good information on this extremely common running issue!
