Abstract|ملخص البحث

Q-angle is considered an important factor in the development of a variety of soft tissue conditions. An abnormal high or low Q-angle has been repeatedly cited as predisposing to anterior knee pain syndrome common among young active individuals.The objective of this study is to assess the normal Q- angle values in asymptomatic young adults in Abha, Asser region, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The methodology adopted for this study, One hundred (100) male subjects, age range (18-25) years participated in the study. The Q-angle of the subjects was measured in the supine lying position with quadriceps relaxed, with knees extended by using a universal goniometer. The results showed the average Mean Q angle and S.D for 100 subjects who participated in the study was 13 ± 2.16. This study also assessed the correlation between Age and Q angle. The study concluded that the normal Q-angle values vary between different ethnic groups. Therefore, it is recommended that Q-angle assessment should be an essential component of the physiotherapy management of knee joint pathology KEYWORDS: Q angle; Asymptomatic young male adults; Gender
