EFFECT OF POST-ISOMETRIC RELAXATION AND RECIPROCAL INHIBITION IN OSTEOARTHRITIS KNEE
Keywords:Post-isometric relaxation, reciprocal inhibition, Osteoarthritis, IFT
Objectives : To evaluateeffect of post-isometric relaxation, reciprocal inhibition andcombined effect Â post-isometric relaxation and reciprocal inhibition in osteoarthritis knee.
Method :Ethical clearance was obtained from Institutional Ethical Committee, KIMSDU karad. Comparative study conducted at Physiotherapy Dept. of Krishna Institute of medical sciences. A total of 30 subjectswere equally divided into three groups using Convenientsampling with random allocation(Group A,Group B and Group C).Baseline treatment was given to all three groups(IFT and HMP). Group A was given post-isometric relaxation, Group B was given reciprocal inhibition and Group C was given combination of post-isometric relaxation and reciprocal inhibition.
Result: Statistical analysis was done using paired t test and ANOVA test. Inpre intervention there was no statistical significant difference seen with p values for VAS of 0.3408 and for WOMAC of 0.5424. While on comparing the post interventional values, the results between the three Groups using ANOVA test revealed that there was very significant difference seen with p value for VAS of 0.0023 and for WOMAC of Â 0.0019.
Conclusion: From the study it can be concluded thatthere was significant effect ofÂ post-isometric relaxation and reciprocal inhibition in OA knee.
