Differential diagnosis of anterior knee pain

- Advertisement -

I’m not a big fan of the term ‘anterior knee pain’. It’s a bit too vague for me, especially when you consider that there can be multiple causes of pain in this region.

Potential sources of symptoms include the patellofemoral joint, ITB, bursae, plica, infrapatellar fat pad and more. We must remember too that we can’t blame a structure for pain, it’s much more complex than that!

Central sensitisation can play a role too, as shown in recent research in runners that we cover in Running Repairs Online.
