What is Runner's Knee?

Runner’s knee is a common term used to describe pain in and around the kneecap. It's not just runners who suffer from it though so don’t let the name confuse you.

You may hear your doctor call it patellofemoral pain syndrome or chondromalacia patella. Patella is just the medical term for the kneecap. Runner's knees is more common in women than in men, especially women in their middle age.

What causes Runner's Knee?

Any of the following can cause runner's knee:

  • Overuse
  • Trauma or injury to your kneecap
  • Flat feet / fallen arches or problems such as hypermobile feet
