Yes it is common.  Most individuals have a tight or over active VL complex and a weaker VMO.  This difference is possible due to a positional malalignment of patella  which is the commonest reason

First you must ensure that VMO is contracting properly. Long term injuries such as Patellofemoral knee pain are often caused by VMO malfunction, however some acute injuries also cause the inhibition of VMO.
Consult Orthopedician for isometric contraction...
