Top 5 Products For Runnerís Knee

Friday, 1 November 2013  |  Paul

Runnerís knee is one of the most common knee conditions and is also known by other names such as patellofemoral pain syndrome or chondromalacia patella. Runnerís knee is not only caused by running, it can also be caused by walking and other sports. This painful condition is caused by overuse of the knee and misalignment of the patella causing discomfort behind the knee cap. The best ways to treat this common problem is a good combination of knee and leg strengthening physiotherapy exercises and products to aid you recovery and help prevent future pain.
