How You Can Combat the Effects of Runner’s Knee

How You Can Combat the Effects of Runner’s Knee

One of the most common injuries among people who regularly exercise is runner’s knee. This condition occurs in people who hike, bike, jump, or engage in any other type of physical activity that requires constant bending of the knees. Medi-Dyne offers products, as well as advice, that can help you deal with this condition and stay involved in your favorite activity.

Why it Happens

Runner’s knee symptoms include grinding of the knee joint, pain when bending the knee, popping and swelling. The most common reason it occurs is simple overuse of the muscles in the area. We know you love to work out on a regular basis, but it’s extremely important that you take the time to get the proper rest in between.

The body can be viewed as a series of inter-connective chains. If you have a foot problem, that can lead to a shin problem. If you have a shin problem, that can lead to knee difficulties. As soon as you feel knee pain you have to stop what you’re doing and see a doctor.

How to Handle Runner’s Knee

If you have runner’s knee, Medi-Dyne has a solution. We offer a knee strap that provides maximum support both above that below the kneecap. It reduces the chances of grinding and popping, and also reduces the risk of displacement.

We’re ready to help prevent the kinds of problems that can rob you of participating in the activities that you so dearly love.
