Help - advice needed!!
Only started running last summer. To cut a long story short, soon after, I got a groin injury which would not go away. Some months later, the problem was solved. As a result of over pronating and hip problems, I had some orthotics made. Got orthotics in early March, which only gave me approx. one month to get used to them before the London Marathon. Everything went OK, but since, I have got a bad pain in the side of my right knee soon after running. The day after, it was agony to walk down stairs. After reading up, these are classic symptoms for Iliotibial band syndrome.If any experts out there can give me any more advice on this problem I would appreciate it. Could it just be my body still getting used the orthotics? as I put in alot of miles for the marathon training very quickly, plus on the day, or could the cause be something else?
