I have been having severe knee pains ever since I started running track. I run long distances and whenever I finish running I can’t walk without a limp and lots of pain for about a week and up to one month. When I went to the doctor I was told that it was just because I’m growing, but now I can’t run for more than 15 minutes without getting the results I got after running for 1 hour before. How should I treat this and should I see a specialist?
Dr. Foreman Says:
Since your knees are still bothering you I would recommend a visit to an orthopedist to get your knees checked. Once you have a diagnosis then an appropriate treatment plan can be started.
