I've currently got runners knee or something similar. I saw a new physio today, the old one having left. The new one is a biomechanics specialist and she reckoned I had tibial equinus (or however it's spelt), plus slightly different length legs. She did a bit of work on the knee and advised me to see a podiatrist about getting orhotics which will apparently prevent recurrence once the swelling/irritation has gone.
None of the other physios I've seen picked up on any such problems (and they did look), so I'm wondering if today's is more observant or just keen to put everything down to mechanics.
What do you all think about orhotics? Have they helped you? Do I really need to wear them all the time? Are they complete BS? Any opinion welcome!
