Adolescent Patellofemoral Pain: Treatment and Management [Article]

Knee pain and especially patellofemoral pain (PFP) is common among adolescents, but most of the previous scientific research has focused on adults even though adolescents with PFP are frequently seen in the clinic. During the last five years a research group from Denmark has systematically investigated PFP among adolescents.

Adolescent PFP is hard to treat and this article highlights key aspects that need to be considered when treating adolescents with PFP.
