The inter-tester reliability of the assessment method has been regarded as poor, as has the validity (Powers et al. 1999). The purpose of the study was to determine inter-tester reliability of a group of trained manual physiotherapists. This was achieved using a clinical measurement to assess the medial/lateral orientation of the patella and compare these… CONTINUE READING
