Patellofemoral pain syndrome leads to pain in the front of the knee and is common with running and going up or down stairs. 🦵

One treatment approach for this condition is to increase the running cadence (number of steps per minute).

The reason is that increasing the running cadence helps reduce stress on the joint.

So, if you are experiencing knee pain while running, try “stepping it up,” then make an appointment with our clinic for a customized treatment plan! Check out this video for more information. ▶️ https://youtube.com/embed/bwZE7V5UyJM?rel=0
