Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome is the most common cause of knee pain in the general population.
It is often the result of overuse of the knee in sports that require jumping or running, so it is sometimes referred to as runner's knee

Runner's knee will affect an estimated 25% of adults.

Some of the most common causes of runner's knee is an imbalance between the muscles of your thigh, weakness of your gluteal muscles, or flat feet due to weakness in the muscles of your feet. 

Runner's knee produces a dull pain behind the kneecap that is aggravated by prolonged walking, running, squatting, jumping, stair climbing, or arising from a seated position. You may notice that the pain is often worse when walking downhill or downstairs. 

 

Conservative care is generally successful at relieving your symptoms.
