What is Runner’s Knee?

The Spring Running Season is kicking off! Winter weather is gone and runners are beginning to increase their training mileage. Or, you are newly motivated to begin exercising again to lose weight and decide to push the distance on your running/walking.  New onset knee pain is common with a quick increase in training mileage, running, and exercising!

Runner’s Knee or “Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome” is an overuse injury caused by repetitive forceful extension of the legs. It can also be caused by improper running technique, poorly fitting shoes, muscular weakness, and muscle tightness.

Symptoms of Runner’s Knee

  • Pain inside and around the knee joint
  • Pain with squatting or standing from a chair
  • Pain while running
  • Clicking, rubbing, or grinding in the knee joint
