Presentation Abstract

Introduction:

The Knee joint is the one of the most important joint in the lower limb pertaining to its functions of providing great stability, movement and weight bearing function .In athletes the most commonly occuring injury is ACL tear and the most common treatment method is anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). One of the most common complications after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is loss of knee extension, which often is functionally worse than preoperative instability. It is most common in early post operative phase around 2 weeks and due to hamstring muscle tightness. Hence, this study was performed to see the effect of NMDNTM on extension lag in athletes.

Methodology:

In the study 80 athletes (46 male and 34 female) were included. The average age was 24.8 (ranged between 18-35). Athletes involved into competitive sports were included and recreational were excluded. Also any fractures, dislocation were excluded. They were assessed 2 weeks (13-15days) post ACLR and their active and passive knee extension range was assessed. Athletes with more than 5degrees of extension lag on passive ROM were included and explained about the research and their consent was taken. Post this, Neuro Myoskeletal Dry NeedlingTM (NMDN) technique was used to release hamstring tightness and then their active and passive ROM was checked and the result and statistics were formed.

Result:

The results, shows that after 1 session of Neuro Myoskeletal Dry NeedlingTM (NMDN) for hamstring tightness , 88.75% (71 out of 80) of patients showed improvement in passive ROM and and 73.75% (59 out of 80) showed improvement in active ROM.

Conclusion:

Neuro Myoskeletal Dry NeedlingTM (NMDN) is significantly helpful in improving both active and passive range of motion, reducing the extension lag caused due to hamstring tightness which ultimately helps in better and faster rehabilitation and recovery of athletes post ACLR.
