Patellofemoral dysfunction is a fairly common injury dealing with the patella and the femur beneath it. The patella is the scientific name for the knee cap and it lies in front of the femur. When the patella is forced against the femur or tracks out of its groove there can be great pain. Luckily posturing and muscle development can help the patella return to its proper position and therefore eliminate or at least alleviate the pain and discomfort you have been experiencing.
