Yesterday, one of the physios I follow on Twitter shared a link to an excellent presentation from Dr. Christian Barton at the Danish Sports Medicine Congress 2013, featured in the video below.
I thought I’d share the video here on our blog, as I’m a big advocate of the biomechanical approach to rehabilitating runners with Patellofemoral Pain (aka Runner’s Knee).
Dr. Barton (check out his patellofemoral blog here) discusses current research surrounding the various common biomechanical deficits we see when treating and rehabilitating individuals suffering with patellofemoral pain.
- Multifactorial Nature of Patellofemoral Pain
- Patella Mal-tracking
- Delayed VMO Activation
- Quadriceps Strength Deficits
- Trunk and Pelvic Movement Patterns and Strength
- Hip Motion and Muscle Function
- Role of The Foot
