Anterior Knee Pain

Anterior Knee Pain

Anterior knee pain causes pain in the central part of the front of the knee and can be due to a number of conditions which include: patella-femoral joint syndrome, tendinopathy, bursitis, iliotibial band syndrome, Osgood-Schlatter’s, as well as a number of other conditions.

An assessment by a physiotherapist at ALO Physiotherapy will determine the cause of the pain and the most effective treatments.

Assessment will include diagnostic tests and an examination to identify any muscle imbalances or biomechanical factors in the feet, knee and pelvic region, which may be contributing to the pain.

Symptoms

Symptoms vary according to the nature and severity of the condition. Pain may be provoked by:

  • Walking up or down stairs
  • Squatting
  • Sitting for long periods

  • Rehabilitative exercises
