Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome - How to prevent?

What Can You Do?

To prevent Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), avoid excessive training or sudden increases in physical activity level. Muscles that are involved in running and other lower limb sports should be adequately strengthened, so that they can meet the demands of your sporting and daily activities. Avoid rapid increases in volume or speed of running.

You should also check that your shoes are not worn-out excessively as they may not provide adequate support or shock absorption. Choose a shoe with a correct fit that is suitable for your foot type.
