Abstract
Background: Osteoarthritis knee is the most common degenerative condition affecting the age greater than 40 years leading to pain, functional disability and muscle weakness. Physiotherapists have been exploring different forms of exercise intervention, like conventional exercise, resisted exercise, aerobic exercise etc. Despite the number of studies showing evidence on particular intervention towards outcome measure, evidences are still needed for proving usefulness chief pelvic stabilizer i.e. hip abductor muscle strengthening as a treatment for of OA knee patients.
Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of chief pelvic stabilizer i.e. hip abductor muscle strengthening exercises in patient with OA knee.
Intervention: 58 individuals with OA knee were included and allocated to two groups (n=29 in each group). Groups were administrated with hip abductor strengthening exercises along with Conventional therapy and Conventional therapy alone for 4 weeks (5 days per week). Hip abductor torque was used to assess changes between baseline and post intervention.
Results: The experimental group (Group A) was associated with significant greater change in hip abductor torque, compare to control group (Group B).
Conclusion: Strengthening of pelvic stabilizer improves the hip abductor torque and in OA knee and reduces biomechanical load from the knee joint.
