DJO EDUCATION WEBINAR
Patellofemoral Pain Management by TIPPS
This three part Webinar will look at this condition from multiple angles:
Professor Jim Richards will explore the presence of subgroups and the effect of targeted interventions on the biomechanics and symptoms experienced by people with patellofemoral pain.
Professor Roy Lidtke will focus on the treatment of weak and pronated foot subgroup with right tool to improve alignment.
Mr Cliff Eaton will share current interventions, the importance of quadricep strength, muscle control and the benefit of combining NMES and exercise.
It has been shown that up to 90% of individuals who present with patellofemoral pain have ongoing symptoms up to 20 years following diagnosis. Treatment options for patellofemoral pain typically include; muscle strengthening, patella taping, knee bracing, foot orthoses and manual therapy. However, up to 60% of individuals who receive physical therapy report being no better one year after treatment.
Professor Jim Richards
Professor Richards’ research includes much work on clinical application of biomechanics, the development of new assessment tools for chronic disease, conservative and surgical management of orthopaedic and neurological conditions,and development of evidence based approaches for improving clinical management and rehabilitation. The focus of Professor Richards’ work is to encourage inter-professional research and to develop direct parallels with research to the ‘real world’ of allied health work.
