| Patella Tracking Dysfunction/Runner's Knee/Patella Tendonitis
This is the most commonly occuring knee problem. It is usually caused by muscle imbalances from running or aerobic activity. It presents as a localized pain on the area of the knee cap, which is often accompanied by popping, clicking or grinding noises as the patient walks or runs. It is often aggravated by everyday activities, such as walking, cycling or other aerobic activity.
Doctor's Treatment Plan
Treatment initially consists of reducing pain and inflammation. This is then followed by correction of the muscle imbalances
of the knees, pelvis and feet. Imbalances are corrected through specific stretching and strengthening exercises. We advise our patient how to correct their posture in order to prevent further injury when running, cycling or participating in other exercises.
