Knee pain

Pain in the knee may be caused by many different conditions. Please read more of these following conditions:

Chondromalasia
Chondromalasia (Chondromalacia patellae) is a result of an irritation of the inner side of the kneecap. In most cases the kneecap slides easily when bending the knee, but with some people the smooth cartilage on the inner side of the kneecap rubs against the front part of the thighbone, which causes irritation and pain.

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome – PFPS
Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, or PFPS, is a general term which points to pain in the front part of the knee. The pain is caused by an incorrect movement path of the kneecap, when bending the leg. This incorrect movement path may lead to damage to the tissues in the knee which causes the pain.

Runner’s knee / Iliotibial Band Syndrome – ITBS
Iliotibial Band Syndrome or Runners knee (ITBS) is a common condition especially among long-distance runners. The pain is felt on the side of the knee and is caused by an irritated IT band, which runs between the hip and the tibia along the outside of the knee.
