Abstract

EFFECTS OF PNF TECHNIQUE ON TRUNK CONTROL, BALANCE AND MOBILITY FUNCTION IN CEREBRAL PALSY CHILDREN WITH SPASTIC HEMIPLEGIA

*Logeshwari Selvaraj, MPT (Neuro) and P. Ranjitha

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Background: The center key point of the body is trunk which plays a major role, proximal trunk control, balance improves functional activities. Trunk control is the ability of the trunk muscles to allow the body to remain upright, adjust weight shift, and perform selective movements of the trunk so as to maintain the center of mass within the base of support during static and dynamic postural adjustment. This study examines the effect of PNF technique on trunk control, balance, and mobility function in children with spastic hemiplegia cerebral palsy. Method: A quasi experimental study was done using convenient sampling technique at NIEPMD for 30 spastic hemiplegic cerebral palsy children age group 10 – 14 yrs were selected on basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria were assigned to two groups Group A(n=15) & Group B (n=15) after obtaining informed constant from their parents and were followed for 3 Months. Pre and Post values of TRUNK IMPAIRMENT SCALE and POMA was taken. Result: The mean value of Trunk impairment scale:10.15±0.185, Tinetti performance oriented mobility assessment: 21.80±0.537 of Group A and mean value of Trunk impairment scale: 14.00±0.505, Tinetti performance oriented mobility assessment: 24.15±0.509 of Group B. Conclusion: PNF technique exercises improved significantly in Group B than Group A (trunk exercise) in Trunk Impairment Scale and Tinetti Performance Oriented Mobility Assessment were able to gain confidence and had better performance in their activities of daily living.

Keywords: Cerebral Palsy, Postural Control, Trunk Impairment Scale, POMA.
