Recommend doctor for running injuries!
Dear Cyberdoc

I have been running for a number of years, but only +/- 4 half marathons and a few 10km per year. I have trouble with my knees, which results in pain during a race. Therefor I don't run often. I am aware of itb and wearing the correct shoes. I would like to see a doctor however who would speacialize in running injuries, knees etc. Who would you recommend in the Cape Town area. I live in the Boland. Stellenbosch, Paarl and Durbanville is close by.

Thanks,
Kind Regards,
N.B

Dear N.B
Prof Tim Noakes at UCT will be my first choice.
The clubs will probably also be able to give you some advice in who to contact: http://time-to-run.co.za/capetown/durbac/
