In brief: 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.
