Patellofemoral Pain

“The front of my knees hurt when I sit, when I go up stairs, when I do squats” . . . does this sound like you or someone you know? This is a very common symptom that Physical Therapists at OSR assess and treat. Many times this is due to patellofemoral syndrome or kneecap tracking problems.


This affects kids, teens, and adults. It is not uncommon to see someone who has had this complaint for many years, although treating it when it first becomes a problem leads to a much faster resolution.
