Show Summary Details


A 28-year-old female runner presented to the sport and exercise medicine clinic with left anterior knee pain. She had started regular running 6 weeks previously as she was preparing for the London Marathon that was taking place in 4 months. At presentation, she was running three times a week, up to 5 km at a time. Prior to this she had not engaged in regular physical activity. The onset of the knee pain was insidious but had become gradually worse over the preceding 4 weeks. The pain was notably worsened on running and she had noted stiffness after driving. She had not suffered any injury to the left knee.
