Knee Pain around the front of the knee and knee cap is a common injury we see at Summit it is also known as Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome or Anterior Knee Pain.

Knee Pain generally arises when the knee bends and straightens during movements like walking, running or Cycling. The knee cap sits on the thigh bone (Femur) in a groove called the ‘Patellofemoral groove, and is held in place by the quadriceps muscles and tendons. However, when it strays from this path it causes irritation and abnormal stress between knee cap (Patella) and Femur (Patellofemoral Maltracking). This leads to the under-surface of the patella becoming irritated and inflamed which consequently causes knee pain.

As a general rule this is as a result of inefficiency within the gluteal muscles. This is not always a strength issue and more as a result of a timing delay in the activation of the muscles. This can cause the knee cap to alter its path, resulting in pain.

We have put together 3 videos that will help you manage your knee pain. We have followed a very simple approach with the videos we want to help you decrease the pain using K-tape, target a specific group of muscles and finally put that into a normal movement pattern.
