Patella Femoral Pain
Pain is usually centered around the kneecap and can increase with walking up and down the stairs and squatting activities.
Possible causes can include:
- Quad weakness: especially if the inner quad muscle isn’t as strong as the outer part
- Tightness: especially on the outside of the knee or IT band
- Improper alignment from the hips or feet
- Improper technique with exercise
If these muscle imbalances are present, they can cause the patella to track incorrectly causing pain
Physical therapy can help restore these muscle imbalances by combining stretching, strengthening, soft tissue mobilization, and taping techniques.
