A common ailment among runners, so-called runner s knee can also affect athletes and anyone else who does a lot of walking, biking or jumping. The condition usually causes aching pain around the kneecap. Causes include overuse, where repeated bending of the knee irritates the nerves of the patella (kneecap), direct trauma to the knee in a fall or blow, misalignment or foot problems or weak thigh muscles.
Certain parts of your body may bear too much weight. This can cause pain and damage to the joints. Sometimes, the kneecap itself is slightly out of position. Runner's knee is also called patellofemoral pain syndrome. Whether you are a topflight cyclist, marathon runner or dedicated mall walker, Kinesio Dynamic Knee Support may be for you.
