Yet they despair over the joint's fragility and its ability to interfere with even the simplest forward motion when it is sore or injured. The good news is that a casual runner does not need access to a professional athlete's medical staff for knee pain treatments. The better news is that a few regular stretching and strengthening exercises can prevent knee pain and injuries and speed the recovery when runner's knee injuries do happen.

These injuries are especially likely in physically demanding and competitive high contact sports. The wrong twists and turns of the leg can cause strains with lasting pain and motion limitation.
