Anterior knee Pain Treatment in Adelaide
Anterior knee pain, also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome, is a common condition that affects the front of the knee and is often seen in athletes, particularly runners.
It is caused by irritation or inflammation of the patella (knee cap) and the surrounding tissues and can be the result of overuse or improper technique during physical activity.
Symptoms Associated with Anterior knee Pain:
Symptoms of anterior knee pain may include pain and discomfort in the front of the knee, especially when bending or straightening the leg. The pain may be worse during or after physical activity and may improve with rest. If left untreated, anterior knee pain can become a chronic condition and may lead to other leg and foot problems like plantar fasciitis.
