Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) is a common cause of knee pain seen in the general population, and largely experienced in those participating in sport and exercise. There has certainly been a rise in people complaining of PFPS with the increase in outdoor exercise during COVID lockdown as people look to walking and running for exercise and sanity. Unfortunately, PFPS can affect regular activities of daily living and can limit participation in exercise and organised sport.
With so many people either off work or working and studying from home, we have seen a spike in patients presenting to us with neck and back pain, so rather than sitting in your un-comfy chair for 8 hours+ a day waiting for back or neck pain to pounce, a pre-emptive strike is required! Hopefully these tips will help you make some subtle changes to your daily routine to help avoid pain during this lock down period.
Have you started walking or running as a result of lockdown? Have you perhaps overdone it or noticed your shoes aren’t great and started to feel pain in the back of your heel around your Achilles tendon?
If so you are not alone. With the increase in outdoor exercise due to lockdown, this year we have found a spike in cases of foot and heel injuries, in particular a condition known as Achilles Tendinopathy. Although we do typically see this issue year round with different segments of the population, as available exercise has changed with gyms closed and group exercise paused, there has been an upsurge in people walking and running as their main form of exercise, which can put an increase in stress on the Achilles Tendon.
