The glutes and patellofemoral pain: does it begin and end here?

There is so much discussion about exactly what is the main culprit in patellofemoral pain, one of the most common sports injury of all. Where once we viewed VMO as the villain, there is now a lot of focus on the 'glutes', so much so they almost seem to have developed a life of their own! But what happens if we look a little deeper? Sometimes it feels like we are running underwater!


This posting was prompted after reading once more one of Tom Goom's excellent articles in his equally excellent website. That and a chat with my great mate and BC member Andrew.
