The most common cause of knee pain related to the feet is excessive foot flattening or rotation, which can force the knee to roll inwards in an abnormal position.
Various factors can cause overuse injuries to the knee, including poor footwear, inappropriate training programs and inadequate training surfaces (eg. bitumen or soft sand). Another major cause is abnormal alignment of the foot and lower leg. There are commonly two types of injuries which can cause knee pain:
- Acute injuries e.g. Ligament tears
- Overuse injuries
