The Most Common Cause of KNEE PAIN (Patello-femoral Joint Pain)

May 4, 2022

Patello-femoral joint pain is the most common cause of pain that we help our clients with in the physical therapy clinic.

In this video, I’ll explain what PFJ pain is, and I’ll explain the variety of factors that can contribute to this type of knee pain.

This includes the following factors:

– Quad muscle weakness

– Hip & core muscle weakness

– IT Band pain and tightness

– Foot/ankle pronation (flat feet)

– Underlying arthritis

Understanding the cause of your knee pain is the first step in eliminating your pain and returning to your full activity!

I’ll make a follow up video soon discussing how to eliminate this type of knee pain, so stay tuned for that!

I hope this helps!
