Runner’s Knee

Running knee pain is frustrating, but there is good news! It is possible to fix runner’s knee and avoid it in the future!

How to recover from runner’s knee

There are 2 types of running related knee pain. Pain on the outside of the knee indicates ITB Syndrome, and pain on the front of the knee indicates Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome.

Both of these pain points stem from mechanical imbalances in the body, so, for longterm recovery, we need to build overall body strength, mobility and flexibility – everything a regular yoga practice offers you.

Today I show you some great exercises in a 10 minute yoga class for runner’s knee pain to get you on the road to recovery. Do this class multiple times over the coming weeks and you should feel a positive effect for your knee pain.

This video is also fantastic ‘pre-hab’ to avoid runner’s knee!

I hope you liked this week’s video, please leave me a comment below, and I will see you next week when we will be looking at core strength!

All my best,

Helen
