Runners Knee (IBS)

#1
hello,

I've done 6 weeks of basic training now, and suffered with IBS for the last 3, its getting better, but still get the odd sharp pains and stiffness in my knee, any advice on how to get it sorted before it worsens.

cheers

don't worry, the army will give you a fee upgrade to CP of the knees if you stay in for long enough! :lol:

seriously though, go to see a physio and get your gait sorted - you are probaly running with splayed feet and your knees are over-compensating thus getting painfull

Streching helped me when I had it and new trainers. Are you waering silver shadows because it might be worth getting some insoles.
