They Say Running is Bad for the Knees
Sep 07, 2018
Let me tell you a secret.
The secret to a healthy, functional and pain free knee.
You may have heard the phrase “movement is medicine”.
And you’re probably wondering: But not running, surely?
You may have countlessly been told not to run in fear that you damage your knee. Unless you have already had a serious injury to your knee, seek a healthcare professional for expert advice. The truth is, the evidence debates otherwise.
Did you know recreational runners had the LOWEST rate of developing knee osteoarthritis of 3.5%? Non-runners on the other hand, increased their chances of developing knee osteoarthritis with a rate of 10.2%. That’s a staggering DOUBLE to TRIPLE the difference!
With different medical presentations, lifestyle factors and personal preferences, we understand that everyone is different.
Book yourself an appointment with one of our runnings physiotherapists and marathon to help you DASH past that finish line!
