  The randomised clinical trial will utilise high-quality methodologies in accordance with CONSORT guidelines, in order to contribute to the limited knowledge base regarding the clinical efficacy of foot orthoses in the management of patellofemoral pain syndrome, and provide practitioners with high-quality evidence upon which to base clinical Cited by: Also called Chondromalacia Patellae or Runner’s Knee—is the inflammation of the cartilage of the kneecap (patella), which prevents it from gliding smoothly within the femoral groove, found at the end of your thighbone (femur).When inflamed, the now softened cartilage of the patella doesn’t track properly in this groove, causing a roughening of the patella’s under surface and discomfort. BIOMECHANICAL OVERVIEW OF PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN. High levels of patellofemoral loads, particularly in the presence of an altered PFJ environment, 7 are thought to be a factor in either the development or chronicity of PFP. A PFJ that has relatively low PFJ contact area 11 or diminished cartilage thickness and properties, 7,12 transfers greater loads to the subchondral bone. 8 Indeed Cited by: 5. Foot orthoses have been reported to improve symptoms in lower extremity and foot pathologies such as patellofemoral pain syndrome, lateral ankle sprain, plantar fasciitis and flatfoot 1

Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is the most common presentation of knee pain to sports medicine and orthopaedic clinics among adolescents and young adults. 41 The condition typically develops insidiously 6, 24 and can be defined by the presence of pain in the retropatellar or peripatellar region. 14 Symptoms can significantly affect Cited by: To determine the effects of foot orthoses on quality of life for individuals with patellofemoral pain who demonstrate excessive foot pronation. Background Foot orthoses are a common intervention for patients with patellofemoral by: Role of Foot Orthoses in Treatment of Patellofemoral Pain: There is some support for orthics in the literature. In one study foot orthotics with ther ex over 6 weeks improved PFP better than exercise alone. However the design of the orthosis does appear to .   PURPOSE: The study's purpose was to compare trunk, pelvis, hip, and knee frontal plane biomechanics in males and females with and without patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) during stepping. METHODS: Eighty recreational athletes were equally divided into four groups: female PFPS, female controls, male PFPS, and male controls. Trunk, pelvis, hip, and knee frontal plane kinematics .

Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), also known as runner's knee, is knee pain as a result of problems between the kneecap and the femur. The pain is generally in the front of the knee and comes on gradually. Pain may worsen with sitting, excessive use, or climbing and descending ent: Rest, physical therapy.

It is sometimes called "runner's knee" or "jumper's knee" because it is common in people who participate in sports—particularly females and young adults—but patellofemoral pain syndrome can occur in nonathletes, as well.
