What Brodie has learnt from: Patellofemoral Pain

Injuries Around the Knee

Throughout this new weekly series, Brodie talks about his personal experiences with particular injuries and shares the lessons he has learnt along the way, so you will gain insight into injury management & prevention.

This episode Brodie talks about his battle with patellofemoral pain. Firstly, we explore that runners simply cannot hide behind double leg strength work such as squats, deadlifts and double leg jumping. Double leg exercises will consciously or unconsciously compensate for any weak links you may have.

Next, Brodie shares his experiences with cross-training, along with the current evidence around patellofemoral pain management.

Lastly, Brodie shares his tips on how to tackle this condition head on with proactive strengthening exercises.
