Knee Pain

I have been running for about a year now. I have custom orthotics and I have run 4 marathons in the past 6 months. The last marathon was 2 weeks ago and I had serious knee pain in my left knee for the last 8 miles. Most of the race (point to point) on a canted road surface.

For several days after the race I have had knee pain (worse when walking down stairs). I have tried 3 times to run in the past 2 weeks and each time (about 3-5 miles each) I have experienced the same knee pain. The most amount of days off has been 4. I now have not run for 4 days and my knee feels fine as long as I am not running.

Help, I really miss running.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
