Got Knee Pain? See The Orthopedic Doctors At IMUA Orthopedics Sports & Health, Honolulu, Hawaii

Do you find yourself limping around with aggravating knee pain? Don’t let that curb your active lifestyle! IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health is Honolulu, HI’s premier site for osteopathic manipulation, orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, wellness coaching and information on nutrition. If you are suffering from knee pain such as Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, the highly skilled doctors at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health will be able to put you on a course towards optimal health.

Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome is when you are experiencing pain or stiffness in the front of your leg around or including your kneecap. You may find that walking, kneeling, climbing stairs and moving after being seated for an extended period of time produce pain. Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome often develops as a result of the following:

  • Physical Activity That Targets The Knee: Do you play a sport that requires a great deal of squatting and jumping? Do you climb stairs every day?
  • Change In Routine: Have you just started running long distances? Perhaps you’ve added extra days to your workout schedule, or you’re working out for longer stretches at a time?
  • Weakened Musculature: If the muscles around your kneecap aren’t able to fully support that bone, or they are not balanced with each other, that can lead to pain.
  • Leg Nonalignment: If your bones and joints aren’t properly lined up, there can be extra stress put upon the kneecap and surrounding muscles and tendons.

A diagnosis of Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome doesn’t mean you have to hang up your basketball shoes. The doctors at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health specialize in diagnosing and treating all varieties of knee ailments. They will evaluate your situation and prescribe a course of treatment that will stabilize the pain and then prepare you to return to the activities you wish to resume.
