  • Patellofemoral Pain - Knee Pain in Cycling

    There are a few cycling technique faults that contribute to patellofemoral pain syndrome. One is pedaling in too big a gear. A lot of people and unicyclists tend to want to push a hard gear. That type of low cadence pedaling really adds the compression forces behind the knee cap, so it’s really important to get a good spin.


    The other aspect is knee alignment while pedaling. When you look down at your knee when youre pedalling that knee should track in a linear path, shouldn’t be a lot of side-to-side motion. That’s been shown in the research to really contribute to patellofemoral pain syndrome.
