Is it better to see a physio in order to get an insole fitted to correct one off kilter leg or wait and see if said leg will heal on it's own?
Put another way;
Would running with one insole cause that offending leg to then heal in that off kilter position so that that insole is then always needed?
I injured my right knee in january (cant remember an exact moment just knew it hurt later that evening).
Carried on running but only easy runs and with a knee support on the offending side and it seemed to be improving right up till weekend before last when on my Saturday morning run I was again running without the knee support as it felt 'normal'.
The very next day on a family bike ride we stopped at our local town park and I went a little mad running round after the kids and felt something give and the pain return.
I spent a very depressed Monday berating myself and generally being grumpy then on Tuesday before I was stubbornly about to run my right knee clicked (whilst I was splayed trying to retrieve a lost toy from under my daughters bunk beds) and it actually felt remarkably better, not as good as it had that Saturday but like it could heal again as it had done once already.
Next weekend (one just gone) and I've had a gait analysis done (my first) it was a bit spur of the moment so was sans my normal knee support and in the shops (Go Outdoors) running shoes and trousers. The result was that my left and uninjured leg is straight as a pin whilst running, perfect. My right leg however leans outwards by about 6 degrees (anything over 4 degrees is over pro-nation) and is in all likely hood a result of the recent injury.
