So sorry. Frustrating when you consult doctors, PT and have the proper imaging done. Foam rolling and single leg exercises really helped me. If that isn’t working for you, have you considered something like shoes? Any chance you have really bad shoes for your stride or feet? Too much or too little drop? Pronate? Maybe a consult at a really good running shop would help? Viel Glück.
I need your advice because I am desperate:
A few months ago I started to feel a slight pain on my right knee while running. I was able to finish the run, but especially after sitting for a long time, it started to hurt. At that point, I hadn’t made any significant changes in training or equipment/shoes. On the contrary – I had even reduced my running volume due to private issues (moving into new house). After 2-3 days, the pain ceased but came back when running again.
I went to the doctor and he did a MRI. The diagnosis was a IT-band syndrome (“runners knee”). But he also said that the symptoms are not classic to a runners knee because the pain feels usually more severe (I COULD run through the pain – but I do not). I then went to a PT specialized on sports. I introduced strength training again in my routine with a focus on single leg stability (single leg stuff, clam shells, …). I also started to foam roll and stretch. Last week I went for a run again and after 20 min it started to hurt again … the strength training and foam rolling stuff did not do anything against it. The strange thing is that it hurts more approx 12h AFTER the run than during the run. Especially after sitting for a longer time. Upcoming friday I will do a running analysis to see if I have bad alignments/bad running technique.
I need your advice! I want to get back to running!
