Running does not wear out your knees

Are you worried that running may be wearing out your knees? Have you been told that by running you are putting yourself at risk of this occurring? The good news is we can confidently say that this is a myth and that this age-old myth of running wearing out your knee joints needs to be busted back to the 20th century!

Modern research shows that this is far from the case. A study looked MRI scans of healthy marathon runners and found that there were less findings of tears in the knee cartilage than the sedentary population.

This provides evidence that more running does not simply mean more 'wear and tear' In fact, it may be quite the opposite!
