Runner's World has some timely knee tidbits...
Stanford Medical School researchers found that after 20 years, the knees of distance runners were actually healthier than those of a control group.
According to the American College of Sports Medicine findings - overall “physical activity (including running) is beneficial, rather than detrimental, to joint health.”
About 50% of running injuries involve the knee, according to a British Journal of Sports Medicine report.
Exercise scientists have discovered a link between weak hips and that all-too-common knee agony known as patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) which aggravates the front of the knee.
Check out runnersworld.com/PFPS for a video of a hip strengthening routine.
