WHAT IS RUNNER’S KNEE?
Runner’s knee is a type of knee pain. Despite the name, it is not necessarily caused by running. Doctors refer to this condition as patellofemoral stress syndrome (PFSS), or patellofemoral pain syndrome.
Runner’s knee can be caused by:
- a direct impact to the knee;
- problems with your feet;
- chondromalacia patella (broken cartilage under your kneecap);
- weak or unbalanced thigh muscles; or
- incorrect position of any bones from your hips to your ankles.
