Abstract

Objectives: This study aims to assess the effect of shear-wave elastography (SWE) on vastus medialis obliquus (VMO) and vastus lateralis (VL) muscle performances and functional outcomes of patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) undergoing non-selective open kinetic chain exercises (NSOKCE) and selective open kinetic chain exercises (SOKCE).
