I appreciate its hard to give advice on a thread regarding injuries but any tips would be great. My left knee is quite niggly. While running its the knee cap area or sometimes feels like its pulling above the knee. Can't see any visible swelling and nothing hurts to touch. It's not stopping me running bit worry it might. Had this for about 6 weeks now. Not a great description but any ideas how to resolve this
Thanks

I've had similar and it was disgnosed as patellofemoral/runners knee. Had pain under kneecap and just above the knee but no swelling. Saw a good physio who gave me a core and glute exercise programme with a specific emphasis on training the glute to activate when my foot hits the floor as I had become very quad dominant after increasing cycling. It is gradually improving.

I should go and see a physio really. I was leaning towards thinking it was something like that

Might be a daft question but do you need new trainers? Knee niggles are usually the sign that mine need replacing.

I replace my shoes regular. However I do use I lightweight shoe so today have got some 'normal' support shoes to see if that makes a difference

Got something to say?
