Hi,
Seasons greetings!

Any advice welcome!

I have runners knee and am in recovery which involves massage, stretching, ibruprofen, posture exercises and lots of other things. What I would like to know is what is the average recovery time for this type of injury as it has been six weeks and although it has improved there is soreness.

Any ideas

I can't give any advice I'm afraid. I have had a weak/sore left knee since I was about 20. No problems on a day-to-day basis, just after a long run. I wear a knee support during exercise and allow a day or so afterwards for any soreness (if any) to go.

I think I may have the same problem. RICE worked well but painful when starting to move after sitting down for a while.

I was looking at booking a sports massage in early April but I may bring this forward so my physio can have a look at my knee as well.

Got something to say?
