A year and a half ago I developed lateral knee pain and soon after was diagnosed with patellofemoral syndrome
Among the conditions addressed are hyperkyphosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome
, plantar fasciitis and tendinopathy.
Functional and EMG responses to a physical therapy treatment in patellofemoral syndrome
This often results in "runner's knee", or patellofemoral syndrome
, in which the shock absorbing cartilage on the back surface of the knee joint gradually wears away.
We are of course talking about patellofemoral syndrome
, and here we look at solutions and prevention strategies as our injury article series continues moving "up the leg" (see Keep Achilles Pain from Nipping at Your Heels in Jan/Feb 2014).
Scheduled for April 1-3, 2004, Running Medicine 2004: Sportsmedicine Care for the Endurance Althlete, will address such topics as exercise-associated collapse, hyponatremia, pre-participation evaluation, running with diabetes, patellofemoral syndrome
, core stability and deep water running.
