Customized Insoles For Runner's Knee

As the name suggests, Runner's knee is a common disorder found basically among runners in which the stress of running causes irritation at the place where the patella or kneecap is rested on the thigh bone.

The sudden and sharp pain comes with some dull or chronic sensations which disappears while you run but regains afterwards. The major causes often connect their dots from poorly conditioned quadriceps and tight hamstrings.

The inflexible hamstrings put pressure on the knee that leads to tracking the patella out of alignment as weak quads are not able to support it. Strengthening and stretching exercises can be added to the routine in order to treat and avoid Runner's knee to a maximum extent.    

Also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome, the pain is basically the result of abnormal mechanics by forcing the patella to bump against the femoral groove of the knee.

Why Runner's Knee Arises/Occurs?

Runner's knee, being a biomechanical problem, is basically a result of numerous intricate complexities tangled into one.

The basic troubles may arise due to dislocation of the patella, it may be further seen that the patella sits too high in the femoral groove and is larger on the inside than on the outside.

Furthermore, shock absorption may be reduced due to worn cartilage in the knee joint. Also, the patella can be tracked out of alignment due to weak quadriceps muscles.

Even a normal running stride, if performed repeatedly, can result in provoking an attack on the Runner's knee.

The basic causes can be summarized below:

  • Trauma to the kneecap
  • Flat feet
  • Tight thigh muscles or weakness in the thigh muscles
  • Arthritis
  • Fractured kneecap
  • Overuse
  • Kneecap misalignment
  • Thickening and inflammation of the knee joint

Indications Of Runner's Knee

Just like other medical disorders, Runner's knee comes up with a number of presumptuous symptoms that demand adequate attention.

The major ones include tenderness around the patella or behind it, that is basically shifted towards the center, pain towards the back of the knee, an acute sensation of cracking or that of the knees giving out. The pain is suddenly alleviated on steep slopes or hilly terrains on walking or running.

The basic symptoms can be summarized as:

  • Paining sensation while walking, running, kneeling, sitting, standing and squatting
  • Swelling and popping in the knee
  • Dull pain around the kneecap or behind it
