Abstract

Aim to analyze the effects of ankle mobilization and active stretching on low back pain in pronated foot subject. Objectives to find the influenze of ankle mobilization and active stretching on low back pain among subjects with pronated foot. To find the influenze of ankle mobilization and active stretching on low back pain and quality of life among subjects with pronated foot. Methodology: 30 participants with pronated foot along with low back pain were selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. They were equally divided into two groups namely control group (group-A) and experimental group (group-B). Control group would be given with conventional therapy (IFT). In experimental group along with conventional therapy gave ankle mobilization and active stretching of calf muscles, and the participants performance was measured with visual analog scale for pain and oswestry disability index for quality of life. The values were tabulated and calculated using statistical formula and the graph was plotted according to the value and the result was statistically significant. Statistical analysis: Statistical Analysis of post-test, visual analog scale (VAS) and oswestry disability index (ODI) revealed that there is statically significant difference seen between Group A and Group B. Result: The post-test mean value of VAS between Group-A and Group-B is 2.93 and 1.53 respectively which has a statistically significant difference showing the intervention of Group-B effective, and In ODI 80% of participants came with severe disability (41%-60% ODI) moves to moderate and minimal disability (10%-25%) which has a statistically significant difference showing the intervention of Group-B effective and Hence Group-B more effective than Group-A Conclusion: From the result, it has been concluded that ankle mobilization and active stretching conventional therapy (GROUP B) is more effective than conventional therapy (GROUP A) in decreasing pain, and increasing quality of life in subjects with pronated foot.
