Knee Pain While Squatting with Dr. Zach Long (DPT)

We’re back! After a long time off, the Performance Plus Podcast returns for another season of sharing helpful information for fitness athletes.

This week Dr. Zach Long and Coach Johnny B sit down to dissect knee pain while squatting. This condition is commonly referred to as Patellar Femoral Pain Syndrome in the medical community. The diagnosis refers to non-specific pain caused by the knee cap.

In the episode, we detail how to diagnose if the knee pain you are experiencing during squats is PFP, why it is happening, and what to do about it.

Check it out and let us know if you have any questions via a DM @performanceplusprogram for @thebarbellphysio on Instagram.

Below are links to the programs we reference in the show.
