Anterior knee pain
Is pain in the front of your knee stopping you from participating in the activities you love?
Around two in every ten active individuals will experience pain at the front of the knee during activities. This pain may be due to what we call patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). PFPS is one of the most common problems among physically active individuals between the ages of 15 and 30. Fortunately, this is a condition which can often be managed with the right exercises and therapy.
If not appropriately managed, or left untreated, there is a risk of allowing pain to linger and become long-lasting. This may then increase the time it takes to get back to full function, further limiting you from the activities you enjoy most.
If appropriately managed, you can be prescribed an individualised rehabilitation program aiming to improve your symptoms and encourage self-management and confidence, accelerating you back to those activities you really enjoy.
What May Be Happening
Pain around the front of the knee is often a sign of involvement from the patellofemoral (kneecap) joint or the patella tendon. This pain or discomfort may be aggravated by common activities such as running, stair climbing, hills and jumping. There may be a variety of causes, and a thorough history and physical assessment may provide the best way forwards to manage the issue correctly and efficiently.
