How To Treat Runner's Knee Pain
Runner's knee, also called biker's knee, dancer's knee, chondromalacia patellae, etc, etc, has always been treated successfully in sports medicine practices with a multifactorial approach. This article bears that out. Key are exercise, bracing, taping, local treatments (maybe), and foot orthotics. From a podiatrist standpoint, it really means you need to treat the biomechanics. This includes limiting knee flexion, limiting over pronation, changing technique flaws and holding the knee cap in its proper femoral groove.
