Objectives: A functional helpful exercise that tends to correct postural unevenness and endeavours to re-establish lumbo-pelvic mechanics would appear to be beneficial for patients with postural impairment. This study evaluated the effects of right sidelying respiratory left adductor pull back exercise on improving hip biomechanics in participants with a tendency to stand on right side.
Methods: 30 subjects (6 females and 24 males) with a mean age (28.53 ± 2.62 years), mean weight (63.83 ± 3.89 kg), mean height (165.8 ± 3.97 cm) were screened based an eligible criterion. Subjects had been randomly allocated into identical groups (Group I, n=15 and Group II, n=15). Pre and post intervention, active and passive measurement of right and left hip internal rotation, external rotation, abduction as well as active right and left hip shift were recorded. The intervention was provided to both the groups twice a day for 3 weeks. Group I (Experimental group) received stretching, strengthening, postural re-education and right sidelying respiratory left adductor pull back exercise while group II (control group) received only stretching, strengthening and posture re-education.
Results: Statistically substantial differences in both the groups were reported in the active and passive right as well as left hip lateral and medial rotation, and abduction ROM (
P<0.05), with right and left hip shift (P<0.05) after the intervention. However, the experimental group showed better improvement than the control group.
Conclusion: The results suggest that right sidelying respiratory left adductor pull back exercise is effective in improving hip biomechanics in participants with a tendency to stand on right side.
