Exercise therapy for patellofemoral pain syndrome

Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is common among adolescents and young adults. The most common symptom is pain surrounding the knee cap when sitting with bent knees (movie sign) or when performing exercises like climbing stairs or squatting. Different treatments can be tried to reduce the pain and difficulties experienced during daily activities, including drugs and massage.

Whether exercise reduces knee problems during daily activities is unclear however, and more trials are needed.
