Patellofemoral pain syndrome is a common musculoskeletal condition and a major cause for anterior knee pain. It has been associated with excessive compression between the patella and the lateral femoral condyle. It is one of those overuse disorder that can limit activity of daily living along with participation in sports. The prevalence is more on female than those of male with the ratio of 2:1 and it affect athletic female more solely due to greater internal rotation of femur during running which leads to greater hip adduction. The reason for patellofemoral pain syndrome have been multifactorial increased femoral internal rotation, decreased hip abduction and external rotation strength, decreased VMO function and lateral retinaculum tightness. These factor leads to increase in dynamic Q angle that directly increases patellofemoral contact pressure which map a way to patellofemoral pain syndrome. The literature will have an explanation about altered hip kinetics, kinematics and its association with patellofemoral pain syndrome along with rehab protocol for patients with the same condition.
