Dysfunction of the knee extensor mechanism resulting in patellofemoral pain (PFP) presents a significant challenge to those clinicians working in musculoskeletal medicine. The presence of the condition is believed to be related to changes in internal joint loading as a result of alteration in the position and tracking of the patellofemoral joint. One of the first challenges when assessing and treating this condition faced by the clinician is how to reliably and validly assess patella position.
