The runner's knee, literally translated: runner's knee, is common among runners and walkers. Running is a tough sport for the knees. The knees must absorb the forces that are released during every step.
As soon as someone suffers from a runner's knee, you see this person grabbing his thigh, slightly above the kneecap and on the outside of the knee. A tendon plate, the iliotibial tract, runs here. This runs from the hip bone along the side of the leg to the lower leg. Once you are walking or running, you will do this by bending and stretching your knee. The iliotibial tendon will guide along the knee bulge during these movements. Once this repetition is repeated many times, the tendon may become irritated and inflamed.

Frequent complaints arise as soon as there is a lot of walking, many kilometers, mountain walks or at 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. Also, a leg length difference, flat feet, hollow feet, reduced strength in the hamstring or wrong shoes can contribute to this.
The best recovery is to avoid overloading the tendon. You can do this by taking a rest. During the first few weeks, make sure that the tendon is not strained by not walking for a while. In the meantime, you can cycle or swim. After a few weeks, a load can be placed on the tendon. But limit the load by walking less often, fast 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:
