Kho-Kho ranks as one of the most popular traditional sports in India. Prevention and intervention have become focal points for researchers and clinicians. Foot pronation as a potential lower extremity overuse injury risk factor has received great attention in research and clinical practice. This insight encourages us to evaluate static foot posture and injury risk in female Kho- Kho players with a belief that this may provide indications for biomechanical interventions. Methodology: Foot posture was assessed in female Kho-Kho Players using Foot Posture Index (FPI) in standing posture Study design: Cross-sectional study. Sample size: 56 University level players. Results: There was correlation between FPI of Right and Left foot with respect to the injury in the ipsilateral foot. The p values were statistically significant (p≤0.000).Conclusion: Altered foot posture is a risk factor for injury in female Kho-Kho players.Pages: 381-384 | 873 Views 41 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
