Patello Femoral Syndrome
Request An Appointment
Patello Femoral Syndrome (PFS) is a condition that affects the patellofemoral joint, which is the joint between your kneecap (patella) and thighbone (femur).PFS occurs when there is too much stress on this joint, resulting in pain. This can happen for various reasons, such as:
- Wearing high heels or other shoes that put a strain on the joint
- Having kneecaps that are not properly aligned
- Having weakness in the muscles around the joint
- Doing activities that involve a lot of knee bending, such as running or squatting
PFS is more common in women than men and often affects young adults and adolescents. It is also more common in people who are overweight or have flat feet.
Patello Femoral Syndrome Symptoms
If you have PFS, you may experience pain in the front of your knee, especially when you bend your knee or walk up and down stairs. The pain may be worse when it’s cold outside. You may also hear a clicking or grinding sound when you move your knee.
