The vertical jump is a commonly performed activity used for both training and testing purposes. By the very nature of athletic performance, injuries are inevitable. Patellofemoral pain is commonly seen in athletes of all ages, gender, and experience level and has the potential to inhibit performance while also putting one at risk of further injury. Modifications of the vertical jump can be implemented to reduce the amount of patellofemoral pain, prevent further injury, and limit performance deficits to a minimum. These modifications include lower limb placement changes, alterations in floor surface and shoe-type, and taping of the patella. Effective and appropriate communication among all the members of the sports medicine team is essential to promote optimal vertical jump performance for athletes experiencing patellofemoral pain.
