Braces and Supports for Runner's Knee & Patellofemoral Pain
As the name implies, runner's knee is a common ailment among runners, but it can also affect individuals involved in activities that require a lot of knee bending. It often affects young, otherwise healthy athletes. Runner's Knee is also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). Typical symptoms include pain around or behind the knee and pain when the knee is bent. To avoid or alleviate runner's knee, doctors often recommend to run on softer surfaces, stretch before and after workouts, strengthen your quadriceps, and wear a knee brace for patellofemoral pain.
