I tore a load of ligaments in my knee a few years back and had to invest in a good knee brace while I recovered. I got mine - a neoprene thing with metal hinged bars down the sides - from the sweatshop - don't know if they still do them or not...

I would look into some physio and strenghtening exercises though!

If its a dull pain only, you might be better off with doing exercises to stengthen and stretch all the upper leg muscles (both thigh musckes and hamstrings). www.sportsinjuryclinic.net has a good list of exercises, plus links to limb support suppliers. I followed a link to proline-supports.com who proved to be very helpful and quick.

Hi,

I wear a Patella strap which provides good support. It is a thin strap under the kneecap (look at Veron for Man Utd.). They are cheap and easy to run in!!
