Runner's Knee

Runner's knee, also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome, is a condition that typically affects runners and other athletes that frequently and repetitvely bend their knees. The condition commonly presents with an aching pain around the patella (kneecap), increased pain when bending the knee or walking downstairs or downhill, swelling, and popping or grinding feelings in the knee. It is caused by overuse of the knee, direct trauma to the knee, excessive body weight, misalignment in the knee, and flat feet. Some individuals may experience knee buckling, or the knees giving out under weight.
