Patellofemoral disorders (patella instability and patellofemoral pain) are multifactorial conditions. Their successful treatment requires the understanding of the predisposing factors. Lateral tracking of the patella has been hypothesized to contribute to the development of patellofemoral pain [8, 9, 19]. In addition, increased patellofemoral joint stress has been identified in patients with patellofemoral pain .
