Pain behind the knee is called chondromalacia patellae. You may have a deep ache that worsens after sitting for a long time with your knee bent, or when going up and down stairs. It’s most common in people ages 20-45. It’s also called patellofemoral pain syndrome, which just means pain between your patella and femur.
Knee pain from the foot can be caused by the way you walk or problems with your feet. Your body may be compensating for an injury or malfunction somewhere else in the body. A previous injury can weaken the knee or lead to osteoarthritis and possible low back problems.
Bone spurs also can be the result of a poor gait and are caused when tissues wear down, making the bones rub against each other.
