The runnersknee, literally translated: riders knee, mostly occurs with runners and walkers. Running is a tough sport for the knees. Every step that is taken must compensate the knees, the forces of the body.
As soon as someone suffers from a runners knee, you see this person grabbing his upper leg, slightly above the kneecap. Here is a tendon, the iliotibialis. This runs from the hip bone along the side of the leg to the tibia. Once you are walking or running, you will do this by bending and stretching your knee. The iliotibial tendon will guide along the knee bump during these movements. As soon as this repetition is repeated many times, the tendon may become irritated and inflamed.
Common complaints show up as soon as there is a lot of walking, many kilometers, mountain walks or marathons. A number of factors can contribute to a runner's knee. The main cause is the posture while running. Having O-legs or X-legs can contribute to this. A leg length difference, flat feet, hollow feet, reduced strength in the hamstring or wrong shoes can also contribute to this.
The best recovery is by not burdening the tendon too much. You can do this by taking a rest. In the first few weeks, ensure that the tendon is not burdened by not running for a while. In the meantime you can cycle or swim. After a few weeks, the tendon can be exerted on the tendon. But limit the burden by running less often, quickly and far.
ProBrace can also reduce the complaints with the help of an appropriate brace or bandage. Thanks to compression and reinforcement around the kneecap, this brace can provide extra support:
