Purpose: Pronation distortion syndrome is one of the most common physical abnormalities causing abnormalities in the lumbar pelvic and lower limb structures. This research was conducted to determine the effect of eight weeks of selected corrective games on balance, proprioception, and changes in the arch of the foot in adolescent girls with pronation distortion syndrome.
Methods: In this quasi-experimental study and clinical trial, 40 girls with pronation distortion syndrome with an age range of 7-12 years participated and were randomly divided into two equal control and experimental groups. The people of the experimental group played selected corrective games for 8 weeks (3 sessions per week, 60 minutes each session); however, the control group did their normal and daily activities. The modified star or Y balance test was used to measure the dynamic balance index, a goniometer to measure proprioception and measure navicular bone loss index using the method described by Brody (Brody) in the pre-test and post-test. To analyze the data, the combined repeated measure statistical test was used (P<0.05).
Results: The results of the present study showed a significant improvement in dynamic balance (P<0.001), proprioception (P<0.001), and a reduction in flat foot (P<0.001) after playing eight weeks of games. Correction in girls with pronation distortion syndrome.
Conclusion: Considering the favorable impact of corrective games and the greater compatibility of these programs with the physical-psychological characteristics of children, it is suggested to use corrective games for this age period.
