Manage Your Patella-Femoral Syndrome with stretching, cycling, and rolling. PFS is caused by tension in the lateral direction (outside of the body), and slack in the medial direction (towards the mid-line of the body).
I own and love these products. They have really helped me to manage my patella-femoral syndrome, and other products have helped my upper and lower back pain.
Here is how to use these products.
Roll the thigh, IT band and fascia-lateralus.
Loosen up this tissue, get the trigger points out, and inhibit the muscle by rolling.
After a good Rolling, go for a cycle on the Progression Fitness Stationary Spin Bike.
The rolling will have inhibited the Vastus-Lateralis and the cycling will activate the Vastus-Medialis, allowing the kneecap to be pulled to the inside allowing even tracking.
Cycle at least twice a day for at least 5 to 10 minutes, and always Roll before and after.
I recommend a spin bike for the more athletic crowd.
