    With very gentle exercises focused on correct alignment and strengthening the small muscles right around the knee, runners knee can often be corrected. If you want to go the Western route, see a sports-oriented doctor and physical therapist, and look into Feldenkrais, Alexander, or Pilates alignment work.

    If you're interested in an Eastern approach involving qigong (Chinese medical exercises) and t'ai chi (use of slow martial arts forms), email me through the email link on my profile (under fan mail, but NOT the fan mail link) and we'll see what we can do.
