Patellofemoral Syndrome

Reduce pain and get back on the field

So many sports injuries involve the lower body and the knees are so often the body part that hurt. Patellofemoral syndrome is caused by a fall or a slip onto the knees and then swelling of the knee joint follows with muscle imbalances. The kneecap (patella) travels in a groove at the end of the femur, but a fall or trauma to the knee can cause the muscles that guide the kneecap in its track to become imbalanced.

* The number of sessions is based on previous client experiences. There are instances whenever pain may reside within 1 session, and there are instances when relief takes 5 or more sessions. A Prevention+ Plan is always recommended for injury prevention after you receive initial pain relief and resume activity. Results may vary per person. You will find continuous improvement long-term when coupled with at-home exercises.

What experience can you expect when you come in for your Patellofemoral Syndrome treatments?

We will want to assess and determine the key muscles and tendons involved that are not allowing the knee to travel smoothly. Through the use of specific modalities shown to break up scar tissue and promote healing, we work to heal the impacted muscles and tendons to restore strength, mobility, and reduce pain.

Sometimes though, after a injury or many years of repetitive movements, the body can over-compensate leaving you will tightness and tension in your muscles, tendons, and ligaments that can lead to pain beyond what you feel and open up further possibility of injury.
