Answer

Educate the patient so that he/she understands which activities aggravate patellofemoral syndrome. In addition, emphasize the need for extended adherence to the exercise regimen. The patient's physical therapist should educate the patient about a home exercise program, making sure the patient has a good understanding of the exercises.
