The aim of this article is to present functional exercises recommended for patellofemoral knee problems based on current clinical guidelines.These exercises can easily be performed by patients at home. The correct execution and quality of movement must be supervised so that the training can be implemented in a goal-oriented manner and ultimately lead to adequate muscular fatigue. Individual guidance and occasional monitoring by a physical therapist are helpful. The main focus is on training the gluteal and quadriceps muscles, as well as the corresponding muscular chains of the lower extremity and the trunk, which together provide the conditions for a stable leg axis. As a result, pain can be reduced and muscle function improved in people with patellofemoral knee problems.
