    i understand that the sartorious muscle, when tight, can cause inner knee pain as well. I used self massage using supported fingers to massage along that muscle right down to where it attached below the knee. I have often discovered significant tenderness especially, in my circumstances, right where it attaches just inside the knee

      Hi Michael,
      Yes, quite true, the sartorious or “tailor” muscle can cause discomfort, mainly a tingling or burning sensation just under the skin by the inner knee. It’s typically not the deep, aching pain felt by trigger points in the adductor muscles or vastus medialis. On that note, since the sartorius muscle crosses your vastus medialis muscle (part of your quadriceps muscle group) as well, both commonly are involved together and can be self- treated together with your fingers.
      Typically sartorius has other partners in crime when it comes to knee pain, especially adductors, gluts and psoas. The adductors are much larger, and powerful as a muscle group which a greater propensity to pull the pelvis out of alignment. Depending on your specific muscle imbalances, you may find even greater relief treating these muscles as well.
      Good luck!
      Michael

    I just started running and have been having pain on both my inner knees, I believe this may be the issue. Do you have a video or any suggestions on how to get rid of it?

      Hi Brittany,
      sorry to hear about your knee pain, yet it’s very common with runners. I do have many suggestions, which is why I’m working to complete this website and create treatment videos based on specific conditions. The right treatment really depends on your specific alignment and muscle imbalances of your hips, knees and ankles, which tend to be at the root cause of most knee pain.
      I treat it all day at my clinic here in Santa Monica, yet if you’re out of the area, I’m happy to try to help.
      If you’d like my help, send me your posture photos. Put shorts and a t-shirt on, and take 5 photos: Front, back, left side, right side, and a close up photo of your knees. That gives me most info to help you with suggestions.
      cheers!
      Michael
