Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome: Symptoms And Treatments
Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is commonly seen in athletes. It can affect people of all ages and it is also called "runner's knee." While PFPS can develop in people who sit for long periods of time, it is most commonly associated with the jumping and running that is associated with sports activity. Because patellofemoral pain syndrome can mimic symptoms of other orthopedic conditions, it is important that you see a sports medicine physician for a physical examination.
