Runner's knee Treatment in Vancouver

Chondromalacia Patella (also known as CMP, Patello-femoral Pain Syndrome, or Runner's Knee) is a term for a large and disparate group of medical conditions that can cause pain at the front of the knee. It is common in young adults, especially soccer players, cyclists, rowers, tennis players, ballet dancers and runners. Snowboarders are particularly prone to this injury, especially those specializing in jumps where the knees are under great stress. The condition may result from acute injury to the patella or from chronic friction between the patella and the groove in the femur through which it passes during motion of the knee.  If core stability is the issue, treatment might consist of physical therapy focused on the abdomen, pelvis and hips. If the condition is exacerbated by flat feet, these can be treated by custom orthotic inserts.
