Patellofemoral pain (PFP) is one of the most common
causes of chronic knee pain among physically active individuals. Due to its multifactorial etiology, this condition can be difficult to effectively manage. Many individuals with PFP report recurrent or chronic symptoms even after receiving an intervention. Unsuccessful management of PFP may be due to a lack of understanding of the various factors contributing to the development of PFP and how to effectively intervene. This presentation will aid Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists in understanding factors that play a role in the development of PFP and provide evidence for interventions that lead to positive patient outcomes.

In order to receive credit for this webinar participants must attend the webinar for the full duration, complete the quiz with a minimum score of 70%, and complete the participant survey.
