Aaagh! I was quite happy with my training, running about 25 miles per week for 6 months or so. I ran the Taunton half marathon and then the GWR Half marathon with no problems. A few weeks afterwards I started getting a pain in the outside of my knee while I was out training. When I stopped running the pain subsided, but came back when I restarted running. I have rested it and been to a couple of physios who seem to think that it is ITBS. I have been given strengthening and stretching to do, but now I still cannot run more than 3 miles before this pain starts again. It is in the outside lower part of my knee and if I try to run through it, the pain becomes very sharp! It's been nearly 6 months since I ran properly. I can play football and volleyball etc no problem.
I don't think that the physios are getting to the root cause - could I be 'out of alignment' somehow which is causing this pain ? Please HELLLLPP!!
