Treatment Ratings

    Rest, Supportive Shoes
    Strengthening Exercises

I had sharp pain in my knee mostly after sitting. I stopped running and tried strengthening exercises. The pain had improved but it was still there. After reading treatment reviews of other people on this site, I noticed that some people said that changing their shoes helped. I than remembered that couple of weeks before I had the knee pain I bought new running shoes and that might be part of the problem. I rested for couple more weeks and than started to run with my old shoes. My knee is cured now. I think the combination of rest and the right shoes cured my knee. The strengthening exercises helped.
