MOJI OVERVIEW:

The author and avid runner, Paul Scott, writes about how he became obsessed with the mechanics of the human knee after his own personal experience with patellofemoral pain syndrome, also known as anterior knee pain.  After Mr. Scott set out to prove that all knees are worthless, he ended up realizing that the human knee is actually brilliantly designed. He embarked on a knee-knowledge mission, speaking with several orthopedic surgeons throughout the country who specialize in knee surgery and sports medicine to discuss not only the physiology of the knee, but also the different theories about the source of knee pain.  For knee pain, Mr. Scott recommends icing twice a day until pain subsides, using bracing if necessary, resting and then gradually returning to running.  He also recommends strengthening the core, quads, and leg muscles.
