Orthopaedics SA’s Adelaide-based orthopaedic clinic is committed to providing high-quality care and treatment for patients with knee joint conditions, including patellofemoral problems.
The patella (kneecap) and the femur (thigh bone) meet at the knee joint. When problems arise in this area, it can cause pain, swelling, stiffness, and instability. Activities that involve bending the knee, such as running, jumping, and climbing stairs, can exacerbate these symptoms.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention promptly. The earlier a patellofemoral problem is diagnosed, the more treatment options are available.
