How can I prevent or avoid a knee injury while running?

Uneven surfaces and fatigue carry with them the risk of injury. Some runners also suffer from unstable ligaments and tendons. Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or knee support can minimise your chances of injury by providing enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression. Some of the most common forms of injury while running include runner’s knee, ACL and MCL tears and inflammation. Bauerfeind knee braces help to promote blood flow with the use of medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces. Medical compression socks might also be used to aid in your recovery. Protect your joints so you can enjoy your next marathon, 10k, 5k, bushwalk or trail run.

How to treat a running knee injury

We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating common running injuries. They may recommend the following treatments.

  • Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery as well. If the strain is more severe it may require surgery.
  • Runner’s Knee. This is the common name for patellofemoral pain syndrome. This is often due to abnormal mechanics caused by problems close to the knee, forcing the patella to bump against the femoral groove. We recommend speaking with a running specific physiotherapist, they will usually review your running form as well tissue and musculature.
  • Meniscal Tearing. Simple meniscal tears may be treated with the RICE method and anti-inflammatory medications. Advanced tears may require surgery. Surgery for meniscal tears are minimally invasive allowing for quicker recovery.
  • Ligament Tearing. Ligament tears generally always require surgery. A torn ligament rebuild uses a graft of tissue, as the ligament will not typically heal properly otherwise. Surgery is minimally invasive, however it can take time for the tear to heal.

Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent knee pain.

How do I prevent runner’s knee?

Runner’s knee is a common ailment and can be prevented using a knee brace, high quality running shoes and good running technique. A knee brace stabilises your knee joint, assists with proprioception and can reduce fatigue.
