Manual Therapy and Exercise Versus Home Exercises in the Management of Patients Status Post Ankle Sprain

2014-08-27 03:26:02 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A recent study has demonstrated that a physical therapist directed exercise program did not result in greater reductions in disability and pain when compared to a home exercise program. However, no manual therapy procedures were incorporated into the physical therapy treatment program despite recent evidence suggesting that thrust and non-thrust manual therapy techniques may be beneficial in reducing disability, pain and improving gait. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of a physical therapy management approach consisting of manual therapy and exercise to a home program of exercise only. The investigators hypothesize that the group receiving manual therapy and exercise will have better outcomes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.

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.

Transient reduction in blood pressure levels immediately after exercises that lasts 2-12 hours. The reduction varies but is typically 5-20 mm Hg when compared to pre-exercise levels. It exists both in normotensive and hypertensive individuals and may play a role in excercise related PHYSIOLOGIC ADAPTATION.

Harm or hurt to the ankle or ankle joint usually inflicted by an external source.

Heart enlargement and other remodeling in cardiac morphology and electrical circutry found in individuals who participate in intense repeated exercises.
