To Compare the Effectiveness of Intrinsic Foot Muscle Strength Training Versus Balance Training in Reducing Navicular Drop and Ankle Instability on Prolongeed Standing Workers with Excessive Pronation of Foot: A Experimental Study

Jeyaraman [2] | Nagaraj [97] | Balchandar [9]


Abstract: Prolong standing workers having the common issue of pronated foot in standing and while walking, obese and other lifestyle habits also a major cause for pronated foot in people. This may lead to incorrect posture and knee pain, balance issues later. Thirty subjects of prolong standing workers with visible pronated foot and tested navicular drop were randomized into two groups ? group A (Intrinsic foot muscle strength training) and group B (Balance training). Outcome measurements of treatment with relative parameters such as Navicular drop test and Cumberland ankle instability test (CAIT). Each group contain 15 subjects. Duration of the study is 4 weeks. There is significant difference between two treatments (A and B) in terms of average increment in LEFT CAIT SCORE (t = 6.08, p = 0.000 < 0.05). In addition, the mean increment in LEFT CAIT SCORE by Treatment A (3.93) is greater than that of Treatment B (1.00). Hence, we conclude that Treatment A (Intrinsic foot muscle strength training) is effective than Treatment B (Balance training) in terms of average increment in LEFT CAIT SCORE.
