Hi Steve
Having a bit of problem with Forum access so i will try this

Have a Lady about 30 to 40 years , runner casual fun runs etc
Came describing typical Runners Knee symptoms - with advice from others to find another sport.
She is in good condition and has strong lower body waste down

I performed typical massage and trigger points focusing on lower back and gluten/hamstrings about 4 x rotations at medium pressure, as was 1st SLM treatment

She described feeling much better after 1st massage ( never felt so good ) no discomfort when walking down steep grades etc
She had not ran for 5 to 6 weeks previous   tried run 8 days after SLM treatment

Went running on grass at about 1km in started to feel knee pain outer lateral again ( not as strong as before ) ran a further 1km no worst but did not dissapate
Stopped - Pain gone when stopped running.

discussed some yoga positions and scheduled for another go ( no charge - Practice for me )

Any advice would be appreciated

Sounds like you have started the process well Pat and it will just take a few more treatments to sort it out.

Hi Steve
Patient completed 2nd treatment
She had 3 weeks off on leave
She completed a  20min run and felt terrific during and after the run.
The next day she went out for another run and the knee discomfort was back.
She has used roller infrequently and was using yoga standing stance to strengthen
When see her next will get her in and redo same concentration areas weekly until it goes completely
any advice and suggestions would be appreciated

Hi Pat, once you feel the ITB and quad down the side of her leg to the knee is clear and her pelvis is balanced she should not feel any discomfort. Keep working until you feel that.

Thanks Steve
