Background: Patellofemoral pain syndrome is the most common knee musculoskeletal disorder in active individuals. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of three therapeutic protocols in water on pain, motor function and unstable balance in women with patellofemoral pain syndrome.
Materials and Methods: After evaluation, 45 womens with patellofemoral pain syndrome were selected and randomly divided in three groups: water therapeutic exercises, water therapeutic exercises with temporary kinesiotape and water therapeutic exercises with permanent kinesiotapes. Therapeutic exercises was done for eight weeks (three sessions per week). The Biodex Balance System, Kujala Questionnaire and visual scale was used to evaluate unstable static balance (at levels 4 and 8), motor function and pain Assessment, respectively.
Results: results showed that there was no significant difference between the mean differences of pain, motor function and balance among groups. However, the results of paired t-tests showed significant differences between pre-test and post-test of factors in three groups. In this regard, pain reduction in the VAS scale (P=0/0001) and in improvement of motor function (P=0/0001) were significant in all groups. In level 4 of unstable balance, we saw significant differences ((POA=0/0001(, )PAP=0/0001). Also, there were significant differences in the unstable balance (level 8) in three directions ((POA=0/0001(, )PAP=0/0001 (and (PML=0/0001) levels).
Conclusions: Although the statistical results of this study didn’t show any significant difference among groups, but differences between pretest-posttest means differences showed that water therapeutic exercises with kinesiotape had more clinical effect on balance and motor function than water exercises without kinesiotape.
