Runner's Knee Treatment: Knee Massage
An injury known as "runner's knee" is a simple term for a simple problem. Pain or discomfort around the kneecap is one of the most prevalent symptoms of runner's knee. In most cases, it's because the quadriceps muscles aren't working together as they should. Strengthening workouts for the quadriceps may help runners improve their performance and lower the risk of developing runner's knee.
To treat the runner's knee, it is necessary to massage the overused quadriceps muscle groups. The manual therapist may also lengthen and loosen the tendons around the kneecap to alleviate pain, restore mobility, and treat the quadriceps.
