      We’re sorry you feel that way; we certainly didn’t intend them to be demeaning. We find that doing something with a light tone in the run-up to Christmas brings new people to Cochrane, and throughout the year share evidence in different formats to engage a varied audience. The videos (and other products) should always be accompanied by a link to the full review, or a blog about it, so you can get to the full information. Here’s the review on exercise for patellofemoral pain syndrome http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD010387.pub2/full
