Prevention Yoga – Knees : Patello-Femoral Syndrome

Knees - Patello-Femoral Syndrome

We continue to look at the knee, and especially patelllofemoral syndrome and how the knee works in seated asana. Patellofemoral syndrome is pain in the front of the knee, which may be caused by overuse, injury, excess weight, a kneecap that is not properly aligned, or changes under the kneecap.

Looking at the gliding action of the patella within the quadricep, we can learn a lot about how to protect this incredible joint.

The main symptom of patellofemoral pain syndrome is knee pain, especially when you are sitting with bent knees, squatting, jumping, or using the stairs
