Abstract: Chondromalacia patelle (CMP) is the softening of the cartilage fibrillation of patella. The objective of the study was to compare the outcome of VMO strengthening plus patellar mobilization and patellar mobilization alone on Lower Extremity functional scale (LEFS) in female with CMP. This Quasi experimental study comprised 60 females which were divided into two groups with 30 in each conductuded at Haq orthopeadic hospital lahore. Patellar mobilization and conventional treatment was given to Group A while VMO strengthening plus patella mobilization was given to group B. Wilcoxon signed rank test was used to analyze the significant difference between pre and post score. Mann whitney u-test was used to compare two groups. The findings of this study indicates that both treatments were equally effective, VMO strengthening with patellar mobilization has higher score than patellars score alone
