EFFECT OF ULTRASOUND ON PAIN IN AMATEUR SQUASH PLAYERS WITH PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN SYNDROME
Author: Anil T. John, H.R. Rai, Vinod Kumar, Jimshad T.U.
Objectives of the study was to find out the effectiveness of Ultrasound therapy on pain in amateur squash players with patellofemoral pain syndromes. Total of 15 subjects (11 males and 4 females) were included in the study. All of the subjects were amateur squash players were diagnosed with chondromalacia patella by an Orthopedecian and referred for physiotherapy. Subjects who fulfilled the inclusion and exclusion criteria were selected by convenience sampling,. Informed consent was taken from each of the subjects prior to participation. Instructions were given to the subjects about techniques performed. A total of 15, subjects received UST exercises. Study concluded that UST along with exercises caused significant relief of pain and improvement in functional activity in amateur squash players with patellofemoral pain syndromes
