Abstract:   (1027 Views)
Introduction: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, autoimmune, inflammatory nervous system disease, which is emerged under the influence of the loss of myelin in the white matter of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. The most complications in MS include tiredness, muscle cramp, tremor, unsteady gait, and inability to move. This study aimed to compare the effect of selected exercises with TRX and aerofitness on balance and proprioception in patients with MS.
Material & Methods: A total of 30 women with MS referred to the Isfahan MS association in the age range of 20-50 years with an extended disability scale score of 1-4 were purposefully selected and randomly assigned into two selected groups of TRX exercises (n=15) and aerofitness (n=15). The subjects in both groups performed TRX and aerofitness exercises for eight weeks, three sessions per week (60 min per session). Balance and ankle proprioception were measured by the stork balance test and isokinetic device, respectively. Paired and independent t-tests were used to analyze the data (P<0.05).
(Ethic code: IR.UI.REC.1398.042)
Findings: The results showed that the selected exercises with TRX and aerofitness increased balance and ankle proprioception significantly in the patients with MS (P<0.05). Regarding the comparison between TRX and aerofitness, it was shown that TRX (P<0.01) had a more significant effect, compared to aerofitness exercises (P<0.05).
Discussion & Conclusion: The results showed that the selected exercises with TRX and aerofitness improved balance and ankle proprioception in patients with MS. Therefore, it is recommended to perform these exercises as a training intervention to improve the balance and ankle proprioception in people with MS.
