Symptoms of Patellofemoral Joint Syndrome

The most common symptom of Patellofemoral Joint Syndrome is pain under the knee cap where the knee connects to the thighbone. This pain can occur when walking down stairs, kneeling, squatting or sitting with the knees bent for a long period of time. In most cases, our physicians start out with conservative treatments such as rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE) used in conjunction with anti-inflammatory medications. In severe cases, surgical intervention is needed to explore the problem and realign any structures in the knee joint that are out of place. When surgery is necessary, we make every effort to preserve as much of the native joint as possible. He also utilizes advanced treatments such as stem cell therapy to stimulate the body to heal itself.
