Patellofemoral exerc: This is a nice guide with pictures that i printed off for a friend in the past: http://www.Permanente.Net/homepage/kaiser/pdf/6946.Pdf ..... Patella maltracking causes patellofemoral syndrome, so exercises for patellofemoral syndrome would be helpful for patella maltracking (for your internet searching leisure).

Core Exercise: Maltracking has different meanings to different doctors and patients ranging from dynamic to structural. Therefore, at this point a more general term to use is "anterior knee pain". It is important to have a specific diagnosis from an expert, so treatment can be optimized. There are some basic exercises to start at the patellofemoral foundation web site: http://www.Patellofemoral.Org/exercises.Htm.
