On an x-ray of my knees in the sitting position, I have lateral tilt on both knees. I am a marathon runner (formerly at the moment) and never suffered from any knee pain until I pulled a hamstring on my right side last year. Though I didn't run on it for long, my knees started hurting and despite PT and a home exercise program I can't seem to run more than 6 miles before the pain setting in. It seems strange that I can even run this distance pain free, but I really desire to run more and I also don't want to further injure my knee.
