Title:
[The painful patellofemoral joint. Biomechanics, diagnosis and therapy]. 
Abstract:
New knowledge about the pathophysiology and biomechanics of the patellofemoral joint (PFJ) has led to a better understanding and new treatment options. To recognise the main pathology is the most important and difficult part. This article describes the basic principles of biomechanics (static, passive and active factors) and their influence on the PFJ.
