Patellofemoral Syndrome

Can generally occurs when the patella (knee cap)  does not move or ‘track’ correctly when the knee is being bent.

Symptoms include aching/pain/tenderness in the knee, particularly when bending and straightening the leg. Swelling is common and walking up or down hills/stairs exacerbates the pain.

There are a number of causes of patellofemoral pain syndrome including overloading the joint with specific activities such as running, over-pronation and other biomechanical problems such as knock-knees and quadrecep muscle imbalance.

At ModPod Podiatry we can help treat your knee pain.  Treatment  often includes orthotics and appropriate footwear to realign the lower limbs and correct abnormal mechanics, and stretching/strengthening exercises should be adopted.

You don’t have to suffer any longer.
