Patella Femoral Pain Syndrome 30-May-2006 At 10:06:14 AM CJ
Would have to agree with some of Martin's suggestions here. Patello Femoral pain syndromes can arise from a combination of factors. In addition to those already mentioned... poor Gluteal control can add to your problems, further tighten the ITB and inhibit VMO, which results in a vicious injury cycle.
A couple of years ago I found acupuncture to release the ITB very effective, (feels a bit like being belted with a cricket bat, but if you can take the pain, it's good) and frees up the ITB to allow for improved tracking, VMO strengthening and Gluteal strengthening and control exercises to address the underlying problem.
