How to Treat Runner's Knee

Runner's knee is a fairly common condition that occurs when the kneecap (patella) slips out of agreement with the femoral groove. What exactly is the femoral groove? This is a small hole in the femur (thigh bone). With bending and straightening the leg, the knee moves up and down in this little slot. If the ball comes out this song for some reason, it begins to damage and irritate the cartilage that covers the groove femoral. This is the reason for the pain you feel once it develops.

Runner's knee can be caused by several different factors, including but not limited to overuse, trauma to the patella, malalignment of the femur and patella malalignment of the foot ankle and foot, flat, high arches and the imbalance between thigh muscles. Any attempt to treat a runner's knee will ultimately need to take into account the specific cause. For example, if the problem originates in the arch of the foot, then treatment of the patella only alleviate symptoms, but not reverse the problem.

There are some general things you can do to help the knee heal quickly no matter the source of the problem. The most important treatment is, of course, rest the knee. Runner's knee heals by itself, as long as they give the joint a chance to recover. Avoid a lot of walking, running, walking and generally not try to keep frozen knee a position. Standard treatments for swollen joints or irritated, apply here too. Ice the knee for about 20 minutes five or six times day. The elevation of the knee will help reduce sweling, as he finished bandaging the knee joint compression to provide additional support.

If you suspect the problem may result from foot problems, you may want to consider investing in arch supports or orthotics some simple. The condition can also be a sign that your running shoes are too old and need to be replaced. (Remember: you must invest in new shoes every 400 kilometers. This comes up more often than you might think. For example, if you run five miles four times a week for a total of 20 times a week, you have to replace your running shoes within five months. It is a major investment, but the knees will thank you in the long term.)
