Vodcast of the Lecture on Patellofemoral Osteoarthritis: the forgotten joint with Dr. Kay Crossley, Dr. Nat Collins, Erin Macri, BSc (Kin), MPT, MSc
Have you been noticing patellofemoral osteoarthritis (PFOA) being discussed and diagnosed more often in your clinical setting? Do you perhaps feel unsure about how to recognize, assess, or treat this oft under-recognized and misunderstood condition?
We are delighted to have Australia’s very own Professor Kay Crossley visiting us in Vancouver with her research team in May!
In this vodcast session, Prof. Crossley and members of her team will provide you with the latest evidence on PFOA. What is it? What are the clinical features? What role does alignment play? How and when would I assess it? Is it true it can start in your 20s and 30s if you’ve had an ACL injury???
Learn about the best evidence-based physical and exercise therapies for PFOA; identify and address early post-operative predictors of future PFOA following ACL reconstruction; and better select adjuvant treatments such as foot orthoses, taping, or bracing in the prevention and treatment of PFOA.
Professor Kay Crossley is at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. She is an APA Sports Physiotherapist who worked in a large multi-disciplinary sports medicine centre in Melbourne for more than 20 years. She has contributed to a number of sports medicine and physiotherapy texts, including Brukner and Khan’s Clinical Sports Medicine. Her main research focus is on the prevention and management of patellofemoral pain and early-onset OA after sports-related injuries.
Dr. Adam Culvenor is a Physiotherapist and recently completed his PhD at The University of Queensland. He has a special interest in post-traumatic knee OA and the patellofemoral joint. He has worked clinically in both the public and private sector in Australia and is about to commence a post-doctoral fellowship in Austria.
Dr. Natalie Collins is a Physiotherapist and Post-doctoral Research Fellow at The University of Queensland. Her research focuses on better understanding anterior knee pain in younger adults, how it relates to patellofemoral joint OA in later life, and optimal management of these two conditions with interventions such as foot orthoses.
Erin Macri is a private practice physiotherapist pursuing her PhD at UBC. Her research focuses on knee alignment and morphology in early PFOA and how this relates to clinical findings.
