Abstract

Functional, Kinematic, and Isokinetic Strength outcomes of a Hip Strengthening Program among Adolescent Females with Idiopathic Patellofemoral Pain: A Pilot Study

Based on the hypothetical association between decreased hip strength and patellofemoral pain (PFP) symptom severity, selective hip and core strengthening rehabilitation programs are frequently utilized to treat affected individuals. The purpose of this study was to compare the hip strength, hip kinematics, symptom severity and function of subjects affected by patellofemoral pain (PFP) before and after a hip strengthening intervention.

Keywords: Hip kinematics; Hip strength; Knee function; Patellofemoral pain; Physical therapy
