Runner’s knee

runner with runner's knee pain

Runner’s knee is a term given to knee pain experienced by runners. But, it can strike anyone, even if you do not run and even if you are not an athlete. The condition is termed runner’s knee because it is common in those that run. The definition is broader because it can happen to those who walk, bend, bike, or jump frequently. It can even happen to the elderly or the very young.

Runner’s knee is not a diagnosis. Diagnostic terms for knee include sprain/strain, arthritis, degeneration, meniscal tear, or patellofemoral pain syndrome. A runner’s knee is more of a loose term that often is meant to group several conditions that may be the actual cause of pain. Runner’s knee is a diagnosis indicative of weakness in muscles, tendons, and thigh ligaments. The term is often used by a therapist or clinician, as it is a more layman-friendly terminology.

Runner‘s knee can be due to trauma, degeneration, arthritis, or even slight bony misalignments of the knee joint. Whatever the case may be, a runner’s knee impacts the front of the knees. Usually, the most common complaint is pain behind the kneecap.

Why Should You Reconsider Surgery?

Painful knees or runners, walkers, or others don’t need surgery. Knee surgeons are always eager to perform knee surgery. Most often, the knee surgery recommended is not needed at all. We have treated thousands of knee patients told to have a knee operation without surgery or injections. The key to successful recovery is timely care through non-invasive methods. Moreover, arthroscopic knee surgery features are too common. The main reason why it fails is that it does more harm than good. Recent medical research is calling for a halt in arthroscopic knee surgery. Besides, most with arthroscopic knee surgery will need additional surgical interventions later in life.

Chiropractic Specialty Center® offers the best and most holistic knee pain treatment for runners knee, ligamentous tears (ACL tear, PCL tear), or meniscal tears. We have a knee pain recovery rate of over 95% for those strongly encouraged to have surgery. Please don’t take our word for it. 

As mentioned earlier, neglect of mild knee pain can lead to degenerative and arthritic changes. Prolonged neglect can cause severe wear and tear. Several painful knees that are arthritic may require TKR surgery or total knee replacement surgery. However, knee replacement surgery is the last option. If you are a knee pain sufferer, call our center today. Our knee pain treatment program is the most comprehensive. We offer the best non-surgical sports injury treatment in Malaysia.

Can Knee Brace Fix Or Heal The Runner’s Painful Knee?

We have often seen patients walk in with expensive knee braces that do little but waste money. Bracing is not a good idea as it weakens the knee’s soft tissues (muscles and ligaments). And as such, we rarely recommend a brace for you as a primary means of care. When we do recommend a brace, rest assured that it wouldn’t be the useless expensive one. Our physiotherapy methods when it comes to bracing are for 1-2 weeks at the very most. Bracing, if we do, is for a short time. We will ask you to stop using the brace once we have corrected your condition.

Our CSC chiropractors and CSC physiotherapists use specialized knee treatments incorporating unique hand-in-hand clinical efforts based on the latest and most effective protocols in clinical physiotherapy combined with research-based chiropractic.
