PT Inquest Episode 96: Patellofemoral Pain and the Envelope of Function

Download iTunes

On this episode the guys review a clinical commentary on patellofemoral pain (PFP) written by Rich Willy and some moron (Erik and his dumb face). How should we best conceptualize PFP? Is Scott Dye’s “envelope of function” accurate or even useful? Does this understanding change the way we treat this enigmatic diagnosis for the better? We break out the shorts and t-shirts as the temperature in Minnesota gets above 0°F!

Current concepts in biomechanical interventions for patellofemoral pain.
