Abstract:

Nine runners of varying experience top five ranking in state for high school cross-country, 6-time marathon competitor, first-time half marathon hopeful, and six novice runners in basic military training, but similar running gait form presented with medial knee pain. All describe an insidious and progressive onset over a two-week period with no identifiable traumatic mechanism. Gait analysis of each patient presents an over-stride, heel-strike run pattern with knee near full extension at initial contact.
