Runner's Knee Prevention


It may not be possible to totally prevent the development of this condition. There are steps you can take to reduce your risk and avoid making the it worse. These measures include:

  • Proper warming up before exercising. This includes stretching after warm-up and post-activity. This will help to prevent sports-related injuries.
  • Vary the types of activities that you participate in. For example, rather than running or jogging every day, alternate between running and swimming.
  • Take care of injuries immediately. This includes getting first aid and resting the injury until it is healed before beginning an activity again.
