Sports Doc: Help me deal with knee pain that comes after my run

There are a number of factors that can add up to knee pain when running that do not cause problems when walking or doing general daily activities. If your femur is not aligned, the stress on your kneecap can cause pain that presents in the front or sides of the knee. If your pelvis is not adequately supported during leg loading, or if you are not lined up correctly, the knee can “wobble” when you run (like a four-legged chair on an uneven floor) and it can cause pain in the ligaments on the inside and outside of your knee. A rotated pelvis will give you a functional leg length difference that can also cause pain in the knee. In addition, a hard heel strike while running can put extra forces through the knee and cause pain.
