Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

Patellofemoral pain is located in the knee, resulting in fluctuating anterior (front side) knee pain. Symptoms are aggravated with certain load-bearing activities on the knee, such as squatting, sitting for prolonged periods of time, going up and down stairs, running, and jumping. This can greatly hinder a patient’s ability to function properly in their job, sport, or everyday life.

While PFPS can affect both athletes and non-athletes alike, it is often associated with runners and cyclists, as these sports require repetitive bending movements. For more information regarding PFPS and what you can do if you think you may have developed it, contact us today.
