What is Runner's Knee?

Runnerís Knee, also known as patellofemoral knee pain, is the name given to a pain and discomfort originating in the knee joint.

Like those tricky little bones that cause Sesamoiditis in your foot, your knee is also one big Sesamoid, a bone that isnít directly connected to other bones, but held in place exclusively by tendons and muscles, both of which are far more vulnerable to injury. Runnerís Knee is caused by precisely this damage being dealt to the muscles around your kneecap (patella). It is not a serious problem but a sore knee is probably your bodyís way of telling you to make a change to your walking routine before those serious issues do start to arise.
