Abstract


Objectives: To compare the effect of gluteal muscle strengthening along with conventional exercises versus conventional exercises alone on flat foot.

Method: An experimental study conducted at Physiotherapy Department of Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences, Karad. A total of 52 subjects were equally divided into two groups using convenient sampling with random allocation (Groups A and B). Baseline treatment was given to both groups (intrinsic muscle strengthening). Group A was given intrinsic muscle strengthening alone while Group B was given gluteal muscle strengthening along with intrinsic muscle strengthening.

Result: Statistical analysis was performed using paired t-test and unpaired t-test. In pre-intervention there was no statistically significant difference seen with p values for the navicular drop was 0.3563 and for Ink test was 0.7342. While on comparing the post-interventional values, the results between the two groups using paired t-test revealed that there was extremely significant difference seen with p-value for the navicular drop was <0.0001 and for Ink test was <0.0001.

Conclusion: From the study, it can be concluded that there was a significant effect of gluteal muscle strengthening on the flat foot.
