Evening Lecture: Anterior Knee Pain – Differential Diagnosis & Management

This presentation will be of particular interest to therapists, rehab pro’s, doctors and S&C coaches

Anterior knee pain has often been regarded as the black hole of orthopaedics, because of the numerous differing pathologies involved in this catch all diagnosis. The catch all nature of anterior knee pain and the potential for it being a multitude of underlying pathologies is a likely reason for the difficulty often found in treating this group of conditions especially with regards to long term success. This presentation looks at the causes of anterior knee pain and aims to present features of the common underlying pathologies which will aid differential diagnosis.

Lecture content:

  • Key underlying causes of anterior knee pain
  • Typical signs and symptoms of individual pathologies grouped as anterior knee pain
  • Effect of diagnosis on prognosis
  • Targeted management
  • Dr Lee Herrington PhD MCSP
