Details

Patellofemoral pain is a chronic and restrictive syndrome that affects a quarter of the general population. The main reason for the difficulty in coping with pain is that its etiology is multifactorial. Most of the patellofemoral pain management consists of conservative treatment and physiotherapeutic applications among them. Effective pain management requires the ability to decide the most appropriate treatment program for the case. This ability is only possible with a comprehensive assessment and an accurate and adequate evaluation requires sufficient knowledge about patellofemoral anatomy, biomechanics, and pathophysiology.

The fact that physiotherapy methods used frequently in clinics for patellofemoral pain and technology evolves in the light of evidence-based studies makes the information update important for clinicians working in this field. In the current book, the multifactorial background of patellofemoral pain, physiotherapy-specific assessments and treatment approaches are discussed extensively in the framework of the latest evidence-based science. Technical details of electro-physical agents, exercise, manual therapy, taping and orthotic applications and targeted intervention in the treatment of patellofemoral pain syndrome comprehensively handled in terms of mechanisms of action, efficacy, advantages-disadvantages and functional outcomes are discussed. This resource, which additionally presents expert opinions and key points from physiotherapists with academic and clinical experience, provides scientists, clinicians, trainers, and students a current, and comprehensive perspective on understanding, evaluating and managing patellofemoral pain.

About the Editors

Index

“I highly recommend this book. The clinicians refer to Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome as the “the black hole of orthopedics” because treatment approaches that produce successful outcomes for those afflicted continues to elude them. I think the editors have completed a significant deficiency with this book, which includes the treatment of patellofemoral pain syndrome. In the present book, not only basic issues such as anatomy, biomechanics, pathophysiology, and assessment but also detailed physiotherapy approaches are discussed in every respect. The book is a careful and wonderful study, which I believe that academics, students, and clinicians will find answers to every question they are looking for.” - Defne Kaya, Professor, PT, PhD, Bursa Uludag University, Bursa, Turkey

"The title of this book is Physiotherapeutic Management of Patellofemoral Pain, yet the detailed chapters provide information for a much wider range of health care clinicians such as physicians, students, athletic trainers, podiatrists, academics and physiotherapists who study patellofemoral pain and who are likely to examine and treat those with this condition. This book has been written mainly by a team of academic and clinical based physiotherapists. The eleven chapters provide a comprehensive guide and explanation of the many treatment modalities and programs available for patellofemoral pain. - Professor Michael Callaghan, Manchester Metropolitan University, United Kingdom
