Lesson Plan

The research around effective means of resolving a Patellofemoral Syndrome are somewhat scattered and perhaps incomplete. We will explore the 2 most overlooked structural faults and imbalances related to the knee. Is the issue compression or too much tension? Can you have one without the other?


  • Describe the anatomical relationships to consider when addressing and treating PFS
  • Discuss the pelvic role in PFS?
  • List which exercise is critical, and which is contraindicated?
  • Compare Fascia and Tensegrity and how they apply to PFS

This webinar is valuable for:

  • Trainers, therapists and doctors looking for more information on PFS and fascia
  • Doctors/therapists looking to refresh their knee anatomy and specific understanding of the lower kinetic chain
  • Sports medicine professionals who are curious about fascia and the concepts of Space & Flow
