Knee Pain

The underlying cause of knee pain can be varied. Common reasons for knee pain can be related to issues with the patella (kneecap) and the tendons that are continuous with it such as the patella or quadriceps tendon.

Patellofemoral pain syndrome is the pain that can be felt around and on the kneecap. This is also known as the anterior knee pain syndrome, as this can be mostly observed among active individuals and runners. This mostly tends to show when palliative does not track or move seamlessly, which can again affect the femur’s alignment.

Symptoms of Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

Some of the most common symptoms of PFPS include provoking the front of your knee pain while climbing stairs, sitting for a long time, and bending the knees. Again, this is a time when you need to seek medical assistance if the pain persists.

Some of the common signs like:

  • Weakness of legs
  • Numbness
  • Severe swelling

How To prevent?

To prevent Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), you have to skip excessive training or increase physical activity. There is a need to have strength in the muscles to meet the demands of daily activities. Make sure you are wearing the right kind of shoe to get the support and the shock absorption ability.
