Runner's knee, also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), is a common overuse injury characterized by pain around or behind the kneecap (patella). This condition occurs when the patella does not move smoothly within the groove of the femur (thigh bone) during knee bending, leading to irritation and pain.
Runner's knee is often caused by repetitive stress on the knee joint, making it particularly prevalent among runners and other athletes who engage in activities that involve repeated knee bending.
Factors that contribute to runner's knee include muscle imbalances, weakness or tightness in the surrounding muscles, improper footwear, poor running form, and sudden increases in training intensity or duration.
