This study provides support for the clinical use of the Anterior Knee Pain Provocation Test (AKPP-test) as it could differentiate between adolescents with patellofemoral pain and pain-free controls. The test was also associated with functional scores.
The patient is simply asked to stand on one leg and go into a ¼ squat and isometrically hold that position for 45 seconds. They are then asked to rate their pain on a scale of 0-10. This can simply be documented in the chart as e.g. AKPP test #5 pain
