Knee pain, Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is a syndrome characterized by pain or discomfort seemingly originating from the contact of the posterior surface of the patella (back of the kneecap) with the femur (thigh bone). It is the most frequently encountered diagnosis in sports medicine clinics.
The cause of pain and dysfunctions often results from either abnormal forces (e.g. increased pull of the lateral quadriceps retinaculum with acute or chronic lateral PF subluxation/dislocation) or prolonged repetitive compressive or shearing forces (running or jumping) on the PF joint. The result is thinning and softening (chondromalacia) of the articular cartilage under the patella and/or on the medial or lateral femoral condyles, synovial irritation and inflammation and subchondral bony changes in the distal femur or patella known as “bone bruises”. Secondary causes of PF Syndrome are fractures, internal knee derangement, Osteoarthritis of the knee and bony tumors in or around the knee.
Specific populations at high risk of primary Patellofemoral Syndrome include runners, basketball players, young athletes and females especially those who have an increased angle of genu valqus (aka “Q-Angle” or commonly referred to as “knock knees”). Typically patients will complain of localized anterior knee pain which is exacerbated by sports, walking, sitting for a long time, or stair climbing. Descending stairs may be worse than ascending. Unless there is an underlying pathology in the knee, swelling is usually mild to nil. Palpation, as well, is usually unremarkable.

If a health care provider informs you that they ACCEPT your insurance, or will WORK with your insurance or they will TAKE your insurance, it does not automatically follow that they PARTICIPATE with your insurance. Any resulting fees could find you being “Balance Billed” and heavily out of pocket.
ABC Physical Therapy Center is In Network Participating so this situation will not arise when you visit us.
VERY IMPORTANT NEWS – PLEASE READ!
You attend a health care provider who has informed you that they “accept”, “take” or “will work with” your Insurance Provider. It later transpires that they are not In Network Participating and you later receive their bill, for lets say $500.
RESULT: YOU ARE BALANCE BILLED FOR $300 – OUCH!
You need to be extremely careful that this does not happen to you.
