Best Braces For Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT CAUSED BY PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN SYNDROME?

 

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) is a common condition that can affect people of all ages. It refers to pain that is felt in the patellofemoral joint (behind your kneecap) or in the surrounding structures of the knee.

Repeated trauma to the area through high impact activities like sports (e.g. rugby or basketball) can lead to PFPS.

We helped Rugby player Slade Griffin recover from his knee injury. 

Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the symptoms of PFPS and provide support and stability.

The specially designed knit is exceptionally flexible and comfortable on the skin so that your range of movement is not compromised.

You will experience targeted pain relief and protection to allow you to continue with doing the things you love without any major restrictions.

The GenuTrain P3 is ideal for patella issues such as patellofemoral pain syndrome and patella tendonitis.

      SHOULD I DO EXERCISE WITH PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN SYNDROME?

      Yes. Be sure to be gentle and don’t overwork your legs and knees. Exercises like the straight leg lift that strengthens your upper leg muscles are ideal. It is best to seek medical advice on what exercises to undertake.

       

      HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN SYNDROME?

      • Stop the activity the triggered the pain, and rest the area. Trying to ‘work through’ the pain will only make your symptoms worse and delay healing.
      • Do stretching and strengthening exercises, especially for your quadriceps muscles. Your doctor can recommend a physical therapist to teach you what to do.
      • Do stretching and strengthening exercises of the hip, knee and gluteal muscles. Your doctor can recommend a physical therapist to teach you what to do.
      • Severe or persistent pain should be investigated by your doctor.
