Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is one of the most common knee pain conditions seen in the orthopedic population. Pain in this region is felt behind the kneecap and is reported as ranging from being sharp in nature with certain activities to a dull ache at other times. Aggravating activities include prolonged sitting, climbing stairs, squatting and running.
Fortunately, conservative treatment is often very successful in terms of decreasing symptoms associated with PFPS. In many cases, a home-exercise program that includes exercises that target the gluteal and quadricep muscles is all that is needed to reduce pain and improve overall function.
If you have pain behind your kneecap, this program will help decrease pain and improve your overall function.
