Hi I have not been able to run in the past 5 years due to knee pain. As soon as i run downhill my knee aches that bad that i have to stop. I have been for Xray.MRI and they show nothing wrong, Ultrasound shows inflamation and a little fluid. I have had my gait checked and i pronate badly. I have bought various motion control trainers to try along with superfeet insoles and orthaheel insoles.
I also used to have knee pain on a daily basis just walking around work etc. I visited a sports physio and we both agreed i had very little muscle left on my quad. Been doing weight training for 9 months now and do not have daily knee pain only when i run or hill walk.
So i have made some progress in the fact i do not have daily knee pain at work. All my shoes and boots have orthotic insoles in them. I have spent over £1200 on Trainers,insoles,phsio and various knee supports in the last 5 years and still can't run.
The pain i experience is around the front to start with and then accross the back and at this point it is pure agony.
I have tried cho pat,gel band and various other knee supports. I went to NHS phisio and she said it was my fallen arch. So i bought orthotics. Then she said it was tight hamstrings,tight calves and maybe my hip.
Has anybody got any suggestions please as i don't know what else to do?
