THE PATELLOFEMORAL JOINT: Functional Assessment and Treatment

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Successful treatment and management of patellofemoral joint dysfunction requires the clinician to have a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics, and mechanism of injury of the knee. With this understanding and the ability to recognize common presentation findings of the patellofemoral joint, the clinician will be able to accurately determine the patient’s prognosis and formulate an effective treatment plan using evidence-based principles. Emerging evidence suggests that there are key factors that must be addressed in the assessment and treatment of patellofemoral joint dysfunction. If these factors are not addressed, the patient may develop asymmetries that limit proper progression. From healing principles to guidelines for when the patient is ready to begin functional activities, this webinar examines the latest evidence for the rehabilitation of patellofemoral joint dysfunction. This webinar will provide the participant the opportunity to recognize important milestones that are essential for establishing a solid foundation that ensures the patient is able to return to function. In addition, the webinar will present manual therapy techniques to address patellofemoral deficits in knee range of motion in order to promote side to side symmetry and facilitate quadriceps and gluteal muscle activation. Finally, upon completion the participant will be able to recognize and implement functional tests to determine readiness for progression in the patient with patellofemoral dysfunction.
