Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

Sometimes also called runner's knee, patellofemoral pain syndrome refers to pain on and around the knee cap (patella) caused by damage to the underneath surface of the knee cap. This injury is common among girls aged 10 to 20; individuals with small knee caps or those which stick out are more prone to suffer from it, as do those whose feet pronate.

Patellofemoral pain syndrome symptoms : Pain on, around and under the patella, tenderness along the inside border of the knee cap, and pain when bending and straightening up (such as using the stairs).

Patellofemoral pain syndrome treatment : Apply RICE; wear a knee brace. See a doctor for proper rehabilitation and taping. It can be very hard to treat if ignored at the early stages.
