Spinal Stabilization Exercises in Individuals With Transtibial Amputatıon

2019-10-09 09:21:37 | BioPortfolio


Lower extremity amputation causes rapid changes in musculoskeletal system. With the effect of these changes, the energy requirement for prosthetic ambulance is much higher than normal ambulance. Although methods such as the reduction of the segmental load of the prosthesis and the preference of the different prosthetic components for energy expenditure have been emphasized, the effect of exercise types has not been investigated in our knowledge. Therefore, the aim of the current study is to investigate the effect of spinal (Core) stabilization exercises on energy expenditure in combination with the classical physiotherapy program in patients with unilateral transtibial amputation. Individuals with transtibial amputation included in the study will be randomly divided into two groups. In group 1, basic exercises related to amputation will be applied for 8 weeks and in group 2 basic exercises with spinal stabilization exercises will be applied to the individuals. At the beginning and at the end of the exercise intervention, energy expenditure and exercise capacity will be evaluated by a portable exercise test device during '6 Minutes Step Test'; fatigue assessment will be done before and after 6 Minutes Step Test with 'Modified Borg Scale'; the strength of deep spinal muscles will be evaluated with 'Stabilizer'; dynamic balance and functional mobility will be evaluated by 'Timed Up & Go' Test; and the effect of the prosthesis on mobility will be evaluated by the sub-scale 'Mobility' of 'Prosthetic Evaluation Questionnaire'.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
