Exercises that Can Help Prevent Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome in Overweight Adults

Dr. Gaurankan Jyoti Borah


Abstract: Patellofemoral pain syndrome is pain at the front of knee around kneecap (patella). It is sometimes called 'runner's knee' as it is more common in people who participated in sports that involve running and jumping. The knee pain become worse when kneeling, squatting, ascending or descending stairs climbing, sitting for long period of time. The skeletal structure of the knee is simple. The kneecap is attached to the bottom part of the femur and the top part of the tibia. The network of connective tissue around it isn't so simple. This connective tissue helps the knee hinge and protects its structure. PFPS often involves inflammation or irritation of some of that connective tissue. An exercise program designed to improve fitness is essential for most adults.
