Patellofemoral Pain Uncovered
Lecturer
: Claire Robertson (UK)
Content:
This course aims to directly impact on the clinician’s ability to assess and treat patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome, (PFP). The course is a mixture of theory, demonstrations and practical sessions, totally underpinned by evidence. There is a strong emphasis on clinical reasoning throughout.
Claire Robertson
is a consultant physiotherapist in
patellofemoral pain
, at Wimbledon Clinics. She is actively involved in patellofemoral research, having published in many journals, including the American journal of Sports Medicine. She is currently writing up a number of papers following extensive research on the VMO, and she has also recently finished a research grant researching patellofemoral crepitus. Claire’s niche clinical practice and passion for making her teaching relevant to clinicians together with her research activity places her perfectly to deliver this course.

– Describe the aetiology of PFP.
