Abstract:

Objective: Patello- femoral knee pain is a common compliant of athletes and non-athlets of both genders. The prevalence of PFPS has been shown to be as high as one in four in the atheletic population. In a study of 83 runners treated for knee compaints 57.5% were diagnosed with PFPS

Methodology: STUDY DESIGN: A controlled laboratory study, STUDY DURATION: four weeks, SETTING: YMCA College of physical education, Chennai., SAMPLE SIZE: 26 samples.

Procedure: The sports population in the YMCA College of physical education and Ullagaram cricket club was screened for patellofemoral dysfunction using the patellofemoral functional scale. The eligible 26 subjects (17 males and 9 females) were selected according to inclusion and exclusion criteria and informed consent form was obtained the subjects after explanation about PFPS, the subjects were separated into two groups namely A and B.

Conclusion: As the closed kinetic exercise had a marginal significant better results while compared to that of the open kinetic exercises, both are significant in treating PFPS

I. INTRODUCTION

Patello- femoral knee pain is a common compliant of athletes and non-athlets of both genders. The prevalence of PFPS has been shown to be as high as one in four in the atheletic population. In a study of 83 runners treated for knee compaints 57.5% were diagnosed with PFPS. The female to male ratio was found to be 3:2. The most common cause of PFPS are: misalignment with maltracking of patella, chondromalacia patella, patellar tendonitis, fat pad impingement and overuse syndrome, decreased hamstrings flexibility, increased Q angle.
