Abstract:   (660 Views)
Objectives: The incidence of the upper cross syndrome is common in people with depressive disorders due to being in constant and repetitive positions. Due to diseases in the upper quadrant of the body in this syndrome, the proper function of sensory receptors in the ligaments is impaired. This study aimed to investigate the effect of a selected corrective exercise program course on the function and proprioception of the cervical area in people with depression and upper crossed syndrome.
Methods: Thirty people with depressive disorder were purposefully selected and divided into two groups: Experimental and control. The Beck depression questionnaire was used to measure depression. The upper extremity functions and joint position error were measured by a Y-balance device and a cervical range of motion device. The experimental group received the selected corrective exercise program.
Results: The selected corrective exercise program had a significant effect on the variables of upper extremity functions and proprioception in the cervical area.
Discussion: The corrective exercises of the present study can be recommended to experts as an effective method or treatment to improve posture, function, and cervical proprioception in people with depression who have the upper crossed syndrome.
