Knee Pain 2

Knee Pain 2

Question:   I am 63 and have only been running for a few months now but signed up to do a 10k run in two weeks time.  Unfortunately just over a week ago I started having pains at the outer side of one of my knees.  On looking at the internet I assume it is my cartilage.  Can I stop this pain and still do the race?




 Dear Elaine,   There are numerous causes of knee pain and without an assessment by a trained professional e.g. a sports physiotherapist, it is unwise to rely on internet self-diagnosis. I would advise you to discontinue running until you have seen someone who can give you a specific diagnosis and appropriate treatment.   Kind regards     Angela Benjamin MSc MCSP Chartered Physiotherapist
