ITB Syndrome & Patellofemoral Pain (PFPS)

Patellofemoral pain syndrome, sometimes referred to as “runner’s knee,” is typically caused by an imbalance of muscle strength. The imbalance of strength tends to pull the patella or “knee cap” in a direction that causes the patella to track improperly along the front of the knee. Many times, the patella moves too far medially or laterally, causing knee pain. Your program will likely include stretching and strengthening exercises with a focus on alignment and your preferred activity to correct the tracking and decrease the symptoms.
