Effectiveness Of FES Assisted Gait Training On Pain, Patellar lateralization And Walking Speed In Patients With Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome :A Single Case Study
Dr. Shivani Sharma, Dr. Rashmikant Shah
PFPS is one of the most frequent causes of anterior knee pain in adolescents and adults. PFPS is defined as pain behind or around the patella caused by stress in the patellofemoral joint that usually provoked by climbing stairs, squatting, and sitting with flexed knees for long periods of time. The typical clinical presentation in the patients with PFPS are Pain, patellar malalignment, mal-tracking, reduction in the gait speed. Functional electrostimulation (FES) is the application of an electrical stimulus at neuromuscular level to reproduce an impaired or lost function. Gait retraining in subjects with PFPS resulted in significant reductions in pain and improvements in function. This suggests that addressing the underlying mechanics associated with this injury will reduce pain. Aim of this literature is to summarize evidence regarding to gain patellar correction by use of FES in functional manner while walking and stair climbing. So, number of repetitions of Static quadriceps exercise and static glute exercise can be enhanced in multifold in functional manner rather than conventional therapy.
