Patello-Femoral Pain

Patello-Femoral Pain

Patello-Femoral Pain

Usually the kneecap sits in a groove at the end of the femur, sliding up and down on a smooth surface as the knee bends and straightens. Pain may occur if this lining is damaged or an imbalance in the muscles develops, pulling the kneecap onto one surface more than the other (lateral tracking). This can lead to irritation of the underside lining of the kneecap and cause pain.
