30 Bananas a Day!

I've had issues all my life with knee pain, which only in recent years I discovered was due to pronation.  About 4 years ago I started running and read chirunning and I've been practising it ever since (while running and walking).  But since having my son and carrying him a lot when he was little, walking with a buggy etc, I've been having knee trouble again (perhaps due to not paying attention to my form), which has stopped me running several times over the last couple of years.  I got orthotics, which helped for a while, but now I'm back to knee pain every time I run.  This is a serious issue for me as I don't sleep properly if I don't run and only being 35, I want to be able to run for quite a few more years yet!  I have a few questions:

 

Could it be simply that I need to change my orthotics?  How often do you really need to get orthotics updated?

 

My physio says I have muscle wastage from years of pronation, he's given me exercises to do but he says that it will take months to rebuild the muscles - does this sound realistic?

 

I don't think my physio is an expert on running, so I'm thinking I probably need to shop around - what type of practitioner should I be looking for?  Should I simply be looking for a physio who has a lot of experience with runners?

 

thanks, Lia

GOOD luck

Excellent, thanks Kaz!
I have flat feet and either pro or sup - anation. I do have right knee pain, but I dont think it related. My knee "cracks" if I bend it quickly, like the sound of cracking a knuckle. Did the doctor/orthodics really help dramatically? I am considering going. I
Well firstly chirunning made the biggest difference, I applied the principles to walking too, before I discovered that there's also a book called chiwalking, which I assume is what I was doing.  Then orthotics also helped to alleviate problems from short ligaments in my toes, I suppose it depends what the cause of the problem is as to whether orthotics would help you.

have you had any pain in your arches? it happens to me randomly either when I'm walking up stairs or when i jog. and its always when i step down on the for and its not always the same one. but it feels like a thin knife is going through the center of my arch every but it does wear off eventually as long as i put the least bit of pressure on the foot as possible and sometimes when i keep my foot flat to step up on the stairs it doesn't hurt till i pick up my foot. its a little confusing and i hope you could give me some pointers because i really want to start running and i plan to try tomorrow when i wake up.
