Abstract: This paper summarizes the series of studies on patellofemoral joint and patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) conducted in our laboratory in the past ten years. Different aspects of the patellofemoral joint in able-bodied subjects and the outcome of rehabilitation in subjects with PFPS were examined. The findings of these studies revealed the mechanical role of the vastus medialis obliquus(VMO) in controlling pressure distribution of the patellofemoral joint, the influence of lower limb positioning on VMO facilitation, and patellar taping, fatigue recovery of the quadriceps muscles, and biofeedback supplementation on rehabilitation of PFPS. The findings of our studies could provide clinical insights on the management of subjects with PFPS.
