How about when you run?

We hope you never have pain problems, but if you do, then the information provided here can shed some serious light on this issue for you.

Many individuals that like to run unfortunately find that they have knee discomfort. Many individuals feel the discomfort coming from behind or on top of their patella. The pain can go away while you are sitting and resting, only to come back when you weight bear again.

Getting Behind the Scenes of a Sore Knee

1.) Overuse - Knee injuries can arise due to the wear and tear from running mile after mile. The ground impact is not forgiving on many running terrains and this is something we have to deal with each and every time we are out.

2.) Lack Of Correct Warm Up - Let's face it; most of us do not warm up as much as we should. We all know this is how problems can begin to happen. Professional runners are more apt to warm up correctly because they know the costs of neglecting this point.

3.) Self Induced Weight Bearing Injuries - In other words, a sudden twist or turn of the knee when your foot is planted, can really injury one of your ligaments, your meniscus or both. If you happen to hear a "pop" then you may have just incurred a serious ligament injury. (Speak with your physician about your exact diagnosis and treatment plan.)

Professional Runners vs. The Rest Of Us Amateurs

In addition to warming up and running, the exercise regimen of a professional runner will also include a whole range of exercises that strengthen the leg muscles and allow them to better absorb the impact of running. They also know that all it takes is for a poor warm up, plus a sudden twist, to have a serious knee injury occur. Many professional runners have a knee support ready when they need it.  They know that the stability that the brace can help provide can help reduce discomfort.

If you believe that you can benefit from improved stability in one or both of your knees, and would like to pursue pain reduction then you should consider a knee brace today. There are several light weight, low profile designs currently that can help provide great support. The same support that could help you keep running for a long time to come...
