Abstract
Background and Objectives: The stabilization of the knee joint derives largely from the support of the ligaments, ligaments in the knee joint includes the anterior cruciate and the posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL, PCL). When the ACL is torn, it can no longer function as a stabilizer of the knee joint. Valgus laxity, and rotatory and anterior instability of the joint are created. In an arthroscopically assisted approach only the intra-articular portions of the procedure, such as meniscus debridement or repair, enlargement of the intracondylar notch of the femur, or drilling the femoral and tibial bone tunnels, are performed arthroscopically. McKenzie (1981) suggested that the method of assessment was equally applicable and effective for the assessment and treatment of mechanical musculoskeletal disorders of the human extremities. The mckenzie system has also been proven as an effective treatment method for extremity injurie. This study is to determined to study and compare the effects of mckenzie exercises and conventional after ACL reconstruction.
Study Design: comparative study.
Study Setting: hospitals in and around pune.
Outcome Measures: knee range of motion and lysholm knee scoring scale.
Method: 30 subjects undergone ACL reconstruction were selected on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria and randomly assigned in two groups. Group A and Group B after taking informed consent. Group A received mckenzie exercises and Group B received conventional therapy for 3 weeks.
Result: Conventional therapy and Mckenzie exercises are both effective in ACL reconstruction. Conventional therapy showed a significant difference in improving knee flexion than Mckenzie exercises. There was no significant difference in comparison of the effects of both the techniques on knee extension and functional ability.
