23 The patellofemoral joint can be seen as a large slide bearing within this living selfmaintaining self-repairing transmission system. Ligaments can be viewed as sensate adaptive linkages, with the menisci viewed as mobile sensate bearings. The muscles in this analogy act as living cellular engines, which, in concentric contraction, provide motive forces across the knee (transmission) and, in eccentric contraction, act to absorb and dissipate shock loads. 6a). 6b). This region of diminished load is termed ‘the zone of subphysiological underload’.

I believe an extremely common aspect of the mosaic of pathophysiological events associated with anterior knee pain is patellofemoral synovitis.
