In brief: Patella pain

Typically this pain is caused by patella femoral issues if you are young you may have some patella femoral malalignment issues which can be improved with quad strengthening exercises.
If you are older and have more degenerative changes under the patella you may also need nsaids , cortisone or viscosupplementation.
