contribution to "runners knee", per Pose Running founder Dr.Nicholas
Romanov, "The "foundation" of the runner's knee is landing on a ground
foot ahead of the body (GCM) and active extension of the knee by
applying muscular efforts from the quads. These efforts are, first of

Scott Dye re inflammed synovium lining as the cause of most knee
injuries for runners. Needs rest not surgery. "PFPS was an inflammation
of the synovium wrought by activity that can
be described as falling outside of an optimal zone charted on a stress
and frequency matrix, which puts you "outside your envelope of
function." "Synovial tissues can be easily pinched with certain
running up hills," Dr. Dye says. "These can swell up and never go back
down. It swells and becomes vulnerable to repinching. Normal activities
that were once in your envelope, like climbing stairs, fall out of your
envelope." "..explanation: PFPS results from a mosaic of factors,
synovitis, and a loss of homeostasis. The system has essentially
overheated and needs time to cool off." " ... bone scans to determine
