Patellofemoral pain syndrome is a common cause of anterior knee pain quadriceps muscle strengthening is an important part of treatment of this condition but this strengthening is often painful to perform. In this study, effects of quadriceps strengthening at low intensity with blood flow restriction to quadriceps strengthening at high intensity in individuals with patellofemoral pain.
How do you implement in your clinical practice ?
There are fundamental goals in Patellofemoral pain rehabilitation which are reducing pain , improving function, increase quadriceps strength .This study clearly shows that both traditional quadriceps strengthening and BFR training can be used to
