Specific, personalized runner’s knee exercises that you receive from your physical therapist help reduce the pain and suffering you get when you develop runner’s knee. Proper runner’s knee exercises work well for runners and walkers alike. Call your Brooklyn physical therapy practice to treat and/or prevent knee problems before they take you down.

Runner’s knee is a condition that causes achiness and pain around your kneecap. While it certainly can be caused by excessive running, you don’t need to be a runner to get it. Physical therapists offer plenty of interventions that can help with runner’s knee.

Other damage — caused by heredity, previous breaks, prior surgery or just improper walking form — can lead to runner’s knee. The term “runner’s knee” is used to describe any pain that centers around your kneecap or patella.
Common concerns that lead to the uncomfortable condition include:

  • Problems with bone structure, often not diagnosed at birth
  • Standing for extended periods of time, a common work-related injury
  • Weak leg muscles, sometimes occurring because of too much sitting
  • Walking awkwardly or having bowed legs
  • Poorly fitting and inappropriate shoes

While you may need to simply refrain for a time from the activity that caused your pain, physical therapy (PT) offers plenty of interventions that can help with runner’s knee. Physical therapists always aim to get you back to your normal routines, pain-free, in as little time as possible. Goals of PT include:

  • Managing pain
  • Strengthening the muscles that support your knee
  • Working on the way you move
  • Devising new ways of doing things to prevent further pain
  • Creating strategies to manage inherent abnormalities
