Runner’s knee or patellofemoral pain syndrome is a condition where pain is experienced around the kneecap, especially the front.
As the name suggests, runner’s knee is one of the most common types of injuries associated with running, particularly amongst athletes and individuals who frequently engage in activities that stress the knee (such as running, cycling or climbing).
The non-surgical treatment options for runner’s knee include:
Surgery is rarely required to treat runner’s knee. However, it may be necessary in certain severe cases of runner’s knee especially if the symptoms do not respond well to non-surgical treatment options.
Your knee specialist will review your medical and exercise history, as well as conduct a physical examination.
If necessary, Dr. Ong will further perform imaging tests such as an x-ray or MRI scan to reveal the specific cause of knee pain. X-rays can rule out conditions such as fractures, while MRI scans can display detailed images of your knee’s soft tissues.
