Why do my knees brush together when I am running?

  • Knees brushing together can be a sign of muscle imbalances or a lack of flexibility. A suitable strengthening programme targeting your hips and glutes as well as regular stretching can help prevent contact. Also make sure you're running in suitable footwear that still has plenty of life left in them. If in doubt always remember to see a physiotherapist or GP for more advice as well as considering getting specialist advice from a running shop.
