Consensus statement on patellofemoral pain

What management strategies are recommended in patellofemoral pain?

Patellofemoral pain accounts for 11-17% of knee pain presentations to general practice and up to 40% in sports injuries. Although it is highly prevalent, not many guidelines have been published to help clinicans choose an appropriate treatment. The world leading researchers on patellofemoral pain met at the International Patellofemoral Pain Research Retreat in Manchester 2015 and released recommendations based on the current evidence, experiences and expertise.

Other adjunctive treatments, such as joint mobilisations (patella, knee, lumbar), and electrophysical agents were not recommended for use in patellofemoral pain. The 5th International Patellofemoral Pain Research Retreat is scheduled for Brisbane, Australia, July 2017.
