INJURY PREVENTION

Medial Knee Pain

Medial Knee PainMedial (inside) knee pain is caused by the inwards movement of the knee during the weight bearing phase of the running stride.


The knee joint is designed to move in one direction, (backward and forwards), so the additional inwards movement that can occur while running is unnatural and causes medial pain. Women have a higher incident of medial knee pain than men due the wider pelvis and angle of thigh.

How Profeet can help:

1

2
CUSTOM INSOLES
