Patellofemoral syndrome is a condition that involves pain felt in front of the knee and around the kneecap, which is known as the patella. This condition is also known as “jumper’s knee” or “runner’s knee.”
There are a few common causes of patellofemoral syndrome, which are overuse of the knee joint and trauma (i.e. hitting the kneecap or falling on it). While this condition is more common among athletes, anyone can experience the symptoms. The symptoms of patellofemoral syndrome can range from being uncomfortable to extremely painful; however, this condition can often be treated with rest and treatment measures from a sports injury specialist in Los Angeles.
