If you’re a runner you know the joy of fresh air in your face and feeling the strength of your body with every stride. Then just as you’re feeling the stress of the day finally fade away you notice that twinge in your knee again. It doesn’t quite, hurt but you can feel a strange sensation and the next morning when you get out of bed your knee is a little tender and stiff. It’s all part of being a runner, right?
Well, pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. So if you want to keep running - and enjoying it - you should check in with your trusted podiatrist every now and then to make sure your feet and ankles are healthy and strong. That twinge you feel in your knee could be stemming from poor support in your running shoes that’s increasing the stress and pressure on your joints when you run.
