Abstract

Patellofemoral pain is an extremely common disorder, especially in female athletes. There is, however, no true consensus as to the cause and appropriate treatment for patellofemoral pain. This article reviews the epidemiology of patellofemoral pain as well as the proposed etiologies, including quadriceps dysfunction, static alignment disorders, and dynamic alignment disorders. The article also reviews both conservative and surgical treatment of patellofemoral pain.
