Buy Patellofemoral Pain Relief WorksheetPatellofemoral pain is pain under and around the kneecap. Sometimes when your kneecap does not track properly in the groove, it can rub on either side of the bone. If this occurs for a long period of time, it can cause irritation, inflammation, and pain. Most commonly, this pain is felt under and around your knee cap.

Starting off with mobilizing the patella/kneecap can help loosen the area up before starting exercises.

Straight leg raises (SLR), SLR with external rotation, hip abduction, and hip adduction are great ways to work many of the muscles around the knee that might be causing the tracking issues.

Finally, hip hikes are a nice progression to standing exercises.
