constant knee pain
An_244179 posted:
I have recently started running 3-4 times per week, anywhere from 3-6 miles per run. I run at the gym on a treadmill. When I first start running, both of my knees hurt pretty badly. After running for about 10 minutes, the pain mostly subsides. During the day, walking up and down stairs, or even running a few steps after my son really hurts. The pain is equal in both knees, and on the inside, front of the knees. It feels like it's the joint, or maybe cartlidge issues, but I really don't know what could be causing the pain. Any help, ideas, suggestions?

From my experience, it seems that most knee injuries are due to improper landing and walking and posture. Trust me, I had a career ending spinal injury, I almost was not going to walk anymore, and I did hollistic healing and came back. My knees dont hurt anymore, my spinal injury is almost healed, i can play basketball now, and I am only 23 years old. Bro, one suggestion, and you better do it, DONT RUN ON CONCRETE. ONLY IN GYM. ANd if you are overweight, losing weight can aid your joints all over your body. Your knees are very important bro, dont play around with that part of your body. Ice them before running, stretch out, and after a work out, ice them again and stretch. This aids your synovial fluid to be regulated and given water and oxygen as you do this. The bloood becomes oxygenated and filled with hydrogen. Trust me it will make a difference.

Remember to replace your running shoes every 300-400- miles or every 6 months. Many running related injuries are due to worn out footwear. More
