Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

Incorrect running gait, weak or tight quadriceps, chronic patellar stress, and improper shoes may cause this injury. The symptoms include pain in and under the patella and a dull, aching pain in the knee. The pain worsens after sitting for long time or walking down stairs.

Dry needling acupuncture is effective in treating this injury. Needles can be applied directly into the inflamed, tender, swollen, and painful area and into related muscles on the hip, thigh, and lower leg, especially the quadriceps. In addition, the treatment is used to balance the entire musculoskeletal system. Two treatment sessions per week should be provided.
