Exploring Patellofemoral Pain

Test Your Knowledge!


Name 3 different sources of pain in patellofemoral pain


  1. Subchondral bone in the patellofemoral joint itself. The subchondral bone is innervated, not the cartilage. The subchondral bone will be more painful if there is bone oedema as shown in the image above.
  1. The parapatellar soft tissues. These can be compressed or stretched by patellofemoral malalignment. Sanchis Alfonso’s group in Madrid have shown there can be angiogenesis and hence hyperinnervation in the retinaculum.
  1. The infrapatellar (Hoffa) fat pad. This is the most pain sensitive structure in the knee.
