Now I know the reason why I always have knee pain when I am training for marathons. Because I am not a pro runner this is the first that I heard of this term, PFPS. Thank you for pointing out the cause and the way to prevent the pain. I usually use the RICE method already but I do feel like I need to focus more on warming up or stretching. I have always been told that before I run, I do not need that much of a warm up because it is a warm up on it’s own. Now I know better.
I know of the patello femoral pain syndrome. It definitely occurs most times when proper care is not put into taking care of our routines before engaging in athletics and sports generally. Though it has happened to me sometimes ago when I was still actively in sporting activities. Having sought medical help, I also made use of knee pads and straps too to help maintain balance around the knee too. Great post
Hi Roxs, a very educational website, specially for athletes. I know a lot of athletes with back, knee, and hip problems. In our hectic world a lot of people are in pain, not just athletes. I’ve had a knee problem for years. I have been to a physiotherapist and learned a few exercises for better stretching and muscle training but your article about laser therapy is yet another thing I have to look into. Thank you very much, and I will keep looking out for more info on your site.
