    Hello, marathoners often experience knee problems. Which problems are much more specific and common to marathoners?

    Hello,
    I am not sure about knee problems in marathoners but there is one that is more interesting in marathoners. That is Collateral ligament injuries. Collateral ligaments connect the thighbone to the shinbone. Injury to these ligaments is a common problem for athletes, particularly those involved in contact sports.
    Collateral ligament tears often occur due to a direct impact or collision with another person or object.
