Patellofemoral pain syndrome is a condition which has, as its main symptom, pain (severe or mild) originating at the point of contact between the back of the patella and the femur (thigh bone). Runners, cyclists, basketball players and other athletes are most at risk of this condition. The onset can be gradual or the result of a single incident. It also often occurs in response to a sudden increase in training intensity. Braces such as the ones below can be of assistance in managing the pain of the condition.
