The aim of this study was to compare the range of motion of knee and hip in athletes with and without patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). Twenty three healthy athletes (7 women, 16 men) and 15 athletes with PFPS (3 women, 12 men) ranging in age from 20 to 30 years took part in the current study. A bi-armed goniometer was used to measure range of motion of knee flexion and extension, and hip flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, internal and external rotation in the groups. No significant differences were demonstrated in range of motion of knee and hip between the patients with PFPS and control group (P>0.05). It may be assumed that athletes with PFPS had no restricted ROM of knee and hip joints in comparison to the control group
