Patellofemoral pain and hip biomechanics with Dr. Thiago Fukuda (PT, PhD)

Recent studies and systematic reviews have shown that the current gold standard for treating anterior knee pain is the strengthening of the posterolateral hip complex. This animation shows that dynamic knee valgus or pelvic drop may lead to a decrease in the patellofemoral area contact, increasing pressure on the cartilage (chondromalacea).
