No link found between hip abduction strength asymmetry, early stages of patellofemoral pain syndrome

February 10, 2016

Results from this blinded case-controlled study showed hip abduction strength asymmetry was not correlated with early stages of unilateral patellofemoral pain syndrome in female runners.

Researchers included 21 female runners with early unilateral patellofemoral pain syndrome who had not yet sought medical attention and ran at least 10 miles a week and compared them with 36 control female runners. Investigators used a handheld dynamometer to test the hip abduction strength. With the patient in the neutral side-lying position, investigators also measured leg-length discrepancy.
