Patellofemoral pain is a common musculoskeletal issue that affects 10-20 per cent of the general population, making it the most common diagnosis in sports medicine and sports physiotherapy practices. Early diagnosis and treatment may help in a quicker and less painful recovery, as if left untreated, symptoms usually progressively worsen.
Physiotherapy inventions help strengthen one’s quadriceps and hips, which subsequently aids in restoring the biomechanics of the patellofemoral joint. Physiotherapists are able to advise and design customised exercise programs to improve the strength of your knee and leg muscles and help you maintain good general fitness. If you are experiencing patellofemoral pain, or any pain in your knee and joints, it is important to have your condition assessed by a physiotherapist.
An APA physiotherapist may prescribe a tailored series of exercises to prevent and manage injury and help optimise your health.
