Winter Knee Pain

Daniel HEANEYJan 22 2020, 5:27pmAround this time last year I noticed my knee was getting quite bad, it was sore and I couldn’t run on it at all. After taking a few months out because of it I returned to running.

Now that January as rolled around again, I’m suffering with knee pain again! I don’t intend on running with it to avoid injury.

Does anyone else suffer from knee pain in the winter?
If so, what’s the best thing I can do to get rid of this?

Not just a good mountain runner - but very good with mobility pain issues.!

I corrected it for you.

Seriously though. I'd give him a second recommend.

Try some simply IT Band stretches a couple of times per week and also some Frog Squats for improving your hip range.

I noticed a big difference straight away.
