Hitting the Road? Be Kind to Your Knees With Proper Caution and Care

Stamford Daily Voice—March 29, 2016

In a recent article published by Stamford Daily Voice, Robert G. Marx, MD, MSc, FRCSC, a sports medicine surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, explains why runner's knee is one of the most common injuries for runners. According to the article, "Runner's knee is largely preventable; simple pre- and post-workout diligence can eliminate many issues before they ever surface."

Dr. Marx shares advice for preventing such injuries: "Lightweight training twice a week for as little as 10-15 minutes can be very helpful. If you are injury prone, it is wise to mix in other cardio in place of runs a few times a week." Dr. Marx also recommends, "Make sure to have a tall glass of water before your run and immediately after. If taking a long run, make sure to hydrate the day before and avoid the use of alcohol."
