Avoid a painful Patella
Petellofemoral pain is one of the most common types of knee pain. Usually characterized by pain beneath the kneecap (patella) that gets worse after working out. A lot of runners have weak or tight muscles which can usually be the cause. With more people getting out and running we’ll be posting more exercises that we recommend to target those tight and weak areas to help stabilize your knee.
Start 1. Lie on stomach with foam roll under front of thigh, upper body supported on forearms.
Movement 1. Slowly roll front of thigh; apply pressure on tender spots for 30 seconds.
