I need some advice to enable me to get back running and cure theis knee calf pain.
after running a 8 mile run i started reciving a pain below my knee (the pain is on the left leg outer leg from where the knee meets the lower leg and runs 6 inch down )
if i get a knock or injury the injury usally heals it self but this time the pain is still there.
i can walk okay but any pressure ie walking up stairs the pain is sharp and runs down 6 inch
i have rested not ran there is no swelling and i can not find any indentical injurys online
anyone have any ideas
Hi Dr Worm,
Only thing I can suggest is to try a sports massage. They're good at easing out any blockages in case that's what's causing you pain. Other than that I guess a physio may help.
See a foot specialist. A podiatrist. Could be the arches of your feet being to flat or too arched (don't know the technical terms). I had a similar problem and got orthotics, problems solved!
