Abstract: 

Background: Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is a common problem among adolescents and young adults especially in soccer players, cyclists, rowers, volleyball players, ballet dancers, horseback riders, tennis players and runners as well as housewives.1Objective of the study was to find out whether ultrasound therapy with exercises or patellar taping with exercises is more effective on pain and muscle power, KPFPS and Q angle in patients with chondromalacia patella.
Method: A total of 120 subjects were included in the study basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria and divided into two groups. One group underwent patellar taping and exercises.(n=60)Second group underwent ultrasound and exercises.(n=60).Before and after intervention pain assessment was taken by Visual Aalouge scale (VAS) everyday. Functional assessment was taken by using Kujala patellofemoral pain syndrome questionnaire and Q angle,
Result: shows both taping group and ultrasound therapy group are effective in reducing VAS score and improving Q angle. But comparing taping and ultrasound taping group had drastic improvement in reducing vas and Q angle (p<.003).
Conclusion: The result suggests that taping is more effective than ultrasound therapy on pain and function in subject with patella femoral pain syndrome.
