New Guidelines for Runner’s Knee

Active rather than passive treatments are the key to recovering from “Runner’s Knee”, according to new international treatment guidelines co-authored by La Trobe University physiotherapy researcher Dr Christian Barton.

❇️ People with kneecap pain should engage in exercise-therapy, namely hip & knee strengthening

❇️ An exercise program that gradually increases activities such as running, exercise classes, sports, or walking, is the best way to prevent kneecap pain

❇️ Risk of kneecap pain can be reduced through improved leg strength, particularly the thigh muscles

❇️ Pain does not necessarily equate to knee damage
