Aqsa Butt, Rehana Niazi, Abbas Jamil, Nazir Mehrvi.

Abstract
Objective: To find the prevalence of patellofemoral pain syndrome in females and its impact on daily activities.
Methodology: This observational cross-sectional study was done on 162 females of age range 18 to 30 years using non-probability convenient sampling. Data were collected from different institutes of Lahore. Participants were assessed on the basis of the Anterior Knee Pain Questionnaire. To find the impact on daily activities, LEFS was used. Both questionnaires were provided to the participants in hand and they filled the answers on the spot.
Results: Out of 162 Participants, 25 (15.2%) had patellofemoral pain syndrome and one had unstable patella. Out of 162 participants, 14 had mild difficulty (8.64%) and 2 had moderate difficulty (1.23%) with lower extremity functions. There was an association between patellofemoral pain syndrome and LEFS (Likelihood ratio 71.071).
Conclusion: Patellofemoral pain syndrome is very common among females. Because of the painful symptomatic condition, the individual is unable to perform usual daily activities. As this condition is quite underrated, the therapist should pay close attention to its diagnosis and treatment plan to avoid the osteoarthritic condition of the joint.

Key words: Patellofemoral pain syndrome, anterior knee pain, Kujala score.
