Abstract

BACKGROUND
Patellofemoral pain syndrome is a common disorder of knee especially in females that causes functional impairments and reduces quality of life
OBJECTIVES
To study the effectiveness of hip and knee strengthening on PFPS individuals on pain variation measured by visual
analog scale (VAS), range of motion (ROM) variation measured by goniometry and functional activates measured by lower extremity functional scale (LEFS).
METHODS
Forty four female subjects were randomly assigned into supervised and unsupervised groups with hip and knee strengthening for 4 weeks with 12 treatment sessions 3 times in a week. Patients were evaluated for pain by VAS, knee ROM by goniometer , and functional activity by LEFS were measured at before and after 4th week of treatment.
RESULTS
VAS, knee ROM and LEFS shows statistically significant (p<0.05) improvement in both groups.
CONCLUSION
The present RCT shows effectiveness of hip and knee strengthening on pain, knee ROM and functional activity in female subjects with patellofemoral pain syndrome. The study shows improvement in both groups but supervised group is more effective than unsupervised group.
Thus, this study concludes supervised hip and knee strengthening exercises is more effective in treating the subjects with patellofemoral pain syndrome.
