Forget the human condition—knee pain is the one unifying force that most of us have experienced on some level. A sprain, a twist, a dislocation, a bruise; certain acute injuries are unavoidable. Many chronic injuries are avoidable, however, but there’s no need to put up with persistent pain.For the love of knees
Just read a short article by injury specialist and exercise physiologist Rick Kaselj, MS suggesting the position you keep your knee in, is partly causing knee pain.
Positions include 1. sitting down with your knees bent. 2. With your feet crossed 3. Your feet behind you and under your chair.
Yesterday I went on my first run in over 6 months! I felt like a school girl waitting to go on a first date. A little scared. A little nervous. A little excited. As I laced up my sneakers, I worried if the pain would return. Was I really healed? Had the all the months of physical therapy worked?
Are you a seasoned running veteran and/or a new runner prone to injury? Have you recently read Born to Run and inspired to run barefoot, buy Vibrams or finally take on that ultra out west? Do you want to keep running in your 70's or 80's?
