PFS - Posture/biomechanical related stuff
« on: March 28, 2006, 02:07:42 AM »
Hi, I've been dealing with PFS syndrome for some months now after a period of too much exercise. No matter what I do it won't go away. I have been following all the normal modalities, stretching, soft tissue massage, strengthening etc etc. I still cannot run without regretting it for a day or two later. I have noticed the following, when standing up from a chair if I lean forward at hips and then stand up I get less discomfort, the same with squatting, I can squat painlessly by having plenty of forward lean, by virtue of this my knee's also travel significantly more forward than if I was to squat sitting back and down but the movement is much less painful.

Doing the lying on back hamstring stretch, straightening my leg when it's at 90 degree's causing fairly serious cracking in both knee's and some pain. Does this make sense? What is pulling on the knee cap in this position, the quad are in a shortened position so I dont understand why i feel such knee cap pressure in this position? Could this be relevant to my condition?

I was diagnosed with PFS in January, also caused by "overuse" a.k.a exercising too much.  I am still having pain as well.  I am actually going to see my orthopedic on Friday because I dont feel like I should still be having pain.  How long have you had yours?
