Patellofemoral Anatomy and Biomechanics CLINICS IN SPORTS MEDICINE Sherman, S. L., Plackis, A. C., Nuelle, C. W. 2014; 33 (3): 389-+


Patellofemoral disorders are common. There is a broad spectrum of disease, ranging from patellofemoral pain and instability to focal cartilage disease and arthritis. Regardless of the specific condition, abnormal anatomy and biomechanics are often the root cause of patellofemoral dysfunction. A thorough understanding of normal patellofemoral anatomy and biomechanics is critical for the treating physician. Recognizing and addressing abnormal anatomy will optimize patellofemoral biomechanics and may ultimately translate into clinical success.
