Are squats bad for me? I am.Diagnoed with pfs. What if they are performed.Correctly? What is best treatment of pfs considering I am an athlete.
Squats: I'm not a big fan of anything that drives a significant amount of force into the patella including squats and lunges - especially if you're still recovering. I like wall sits for quad strengthening (which is what you need for pfs), hamstring stretching and if you want to do squats, use proper technique and stop if you're having pain. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a PFS in my Rknee , when I sitdown for a period I feel that my foot's bottom feeling tierd or painful is that normal with this condition?
Not likely: Patellofemoral syndrome is caused by the knee cap not riding exactly in its groove, causing pain when the knee cap is closer to the knee joint, such as when you are sitting with your knee bent, or going up stairs. This should not cause pain in your foot. I suggest seeing your doctor if this happens often. Maybe you have some other sort of condition causing both the knee pain and foot pain. ...Read more

What is the best knee brace for pfs for softball? It needs to be able to stand sliding and lots of running and squating. Should i wear on both knees?
Patellofemoral pain: The best brace is no brace. Making sure that your hip abductors and vastus medialis are strong.

Bracing will serve no great purpose if you haven't done the above first. ...Read more
