Runners’ Condition - A condition where the kneecap (patella) rubs on the surface of the femur rather than following its normal tracking over the knee joint. This condition is due to stress or overuse. Symptoms include knee pain, just under the kneecap after running, progressing to knee pain at rest. Treatment includes rest and stretching exercises for the quadriceps and hamstring muscles.
