It is commonly caused by increased wearing and inflammation behind the knee cap. Catching this condition early before it has a chance to impact on your training program is vital. Not only will you avoid time off but it will also be much quicker to fix.

  1. Foot alignment: when your feet roll in it changes the alignment of your whole leg. This creates wearing in the knee and results in pain and inflammation. A quick video gat anlysis can accurately assess this risk factor.
  1. Increased knee to hip angle: if you can see that your leg appears to go inwards from the hips to knee and then out again from knee to ankle you are at increased risk of knee problems.
