Anterior knee pain or patella femoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is one of the more common injuries that occur in the physically active population. A commonly accepted hypothesis is poor patella tracking secondary to ITB tightness and medial quadriceps weakness. More recently, researchers have recognized the influence of weakness of the hip abductors and lateral rotators on the control of knee motion.
