The purpose of the study is to compare the effectiveness of hip abductor strengthening and lateral rotators strengthening along with conventional knee exercises versus core muscle strengthening along with knee conventional exercises on pain and function in women with patellofemoral pain syndrome by the end of 6 week. 40 participants were taken ranging from 20-40 years of age, they were selected on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria and were divided into 2 groups by simple random sampling method. The subjects were evaluated before and after 6 week Statistical analysis of the data was done using paired t test within group and unpaired t test between groups, there was statistical difference within pre and post analysis of hip abductors and lateral rotators strengthening on pain and function (p value < 0.0001) and pre and post analysis of core muscle strengthening on pain and function (p value < 0.0001), when comparison was done between the groups hip abductors and lateral rotators strengthening exercise was statistically more effective in reducing pain and improving function on NPRS and LEFS as compared to core muscle strengthening.
