Introduction

Patellofemoral osteoarthritis occurs in almost 25% of the general population. It is a significant contributor to pain and disability. Research and clinical practice often focuses on tibiofemoral osteoarthritis but the patellofemoral joint often develops osteoarthritis before the tibiofemoral joint. There are a variety of risk factors that contribute to patellofemoral osteoarthritis. Being able to recognise and specifically target these could potentially slow down the progression of the condition as well as effectively manage the symptoms associated with patellofemoral osteoarthritis. In this course, Claire Robertson presents the latest literature on patellofemoral osteoarthritis and the effective management of this condition.

Aims

This course gives you an introduction to patellofemoral osteoarthritis, explores various risk factors that contribute to the development of this condition and the latest evidence on approaches to management.
