The most prevalent condition diagnosed in most sports medicine clinics is patellofemoral pain. Professor Irene Davis is one of the world’s leading physiotherapists and researchers who addresses this issue.
She’s a regular keynote speaker at major international conferences. In this BJSM podcast she shares her approach to assessing the patient with patellofemoral pain. From this basis she outlines a range of therapeutic options.
Professor Davis was a catalyst for the International Patellofemoral Pain Research Retreats (IPFRR). You can read the full Consensus Statement from the 3rd of these conferences in the special BJSM theme issue highlighted by the Swiss Sports Physiotherapy Association (http://www.sportfisio.ch/) at the link below.
