Patella Femoral Syndrome

Chiropractic Treatment For Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome At Rockefeller Health & Medical in Midtown, New York

If knee pain has you constantly worrying about walking, sitting or even sleeping, then you know you can't wait any longer for treatment. Before you opt for traditional medical techniques like surgery or steroid injections, consider chiropractic treatments and physical therapy. Both have the potential to reduce or eliminate pain from your life for good. 

Woman suffering from knee pain What Is Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome?

Patella femoral syndrome, also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome, is a condition in which the front of the knee becomes painful around the kneecap. This is known in the running world as "runner's knee," but it doesn't just happen to athletes. It's common among those who participate in sports where there is a lot of running and jumping, however. The condition is caused by numerous factors including:

  • Overusing the knee joint and placing repetitive stress on the joint
  • Muscle imbalances and weakness
  • Surgery
  • Injury

What Are the Symptoms of Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome?

This condition causes a dull, aching feeling in the front of the knee. Patellofemoral pain syndrome has some symptoms you may recognize including:

  • Pain when walking up or down the stairs
  • Pain when kneeling or squatting
  • Pain when sitting with bent knees for a period of time
  • Pain when running

It's most common to cause pain for a short period of time, but it's possible to have lasting pain from this condition. When you do have pain, rest and ice may help, but physical therapy and other treatments may be necessary. 

How Can Our Rockefeller Chiropractors Do to Help Treat Knee Pain?

Your first visit with the chiropractor focuses around learning more about you. X-rays, a physical exam and discussion about your lifestyle help the doctor determine a treatment that could help you reduce or eliminate pain from your life. At Rockefeller Center Chiropractic, the goal is to help you achieve a pain-free life through the use of natural, noninvasive techniques such as:

  • Sports therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Chiropractic treatment
  • Acupuncture

Each of these treatments works wonders for patients in combination; they encourage good blood flow, appropriate posture and the relaxation of muscles that could pull your spine out of alignment and place undue pressure on your knees.
