Purpose: This study investigated the effects of an eight-week sensorimotor training (SMT) program with visual feedback (VF) on knee joint proprioception and alignment in women with dynamic knee valgus (DKV).
Methods: In this semi-experimental study, thirty women with DKV were selected and randomly divided into two groups (intervention and control groups) of 15 participants each. The intervention group underwent an eight-week VF-based SMT program consisting of three sessions that lasted for 60 minutes each week. Meanwhile, the control group continued with their daily routine during this period. After the training, all participants' knee joint proprioception and alignment were assessed using the single-leg squat test (SLST) and single-leg landing test (SLLT). The results were analyzed using the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) in the IBM SPSS Statistics software (ver. 26) with a significance level of P<0.05.
Results: The ANCOVA results indicated a significant improvement in proprioception (P=0.038) and knee alignment (P=0.001) in the intervention group compared to the control group.
Conclusion: The study suggests that practicing SMT with VF can enhance knee joint proprioception and alignment in women with DKV.
