Prevalence of hyperpronation of ankle and foot complex in sportspersons having a history of ACL injury with significance to Q-angle


Author(s): Rijoy Mathew, Joseph Oliver Raj and Kshama Shetty

Abstract:
Introduction: 60% - 80% of ACL injuries occur in non-contact sports. ACL injuries are more in age group 18 to 35 years. Typically, in persons with history of ACL injury, there will be uncontrolled internal rotation of tibia leading to hyperpronation at the ankle and foot complex along with changes in Q-angle.
Need of study: To determine the prevalence of hyperpronation of ankle and foot complex in sportspersons having a history of ACL injury with significance to Q-angle. As a result of ACL injury, there is weakness of vastus medialis oblique muscle which directly leads to alterations in Q-angle and lateral shift of patella along with tightness in lateral retinaculum.
Methodology: Convenient sampling of 42 sportspersons with ACL injury. Dorsal arch height was measured in both weight bearing positions using a foot platform and Q angle measured with help of goniometer.
Statistical analysis: Dorsal arch height and Q-Angle measurements were tabulated to know about the distribution and later the significance was analyzed by using percentage, frequency and chi-square test. SPSS-16 was used for analyzing collected data.
Conclusion: This study emphasises that hyperpronation of ankle and foot complex has to be taken into concern in clinical perspective as it is been related to sportspersons having a history of ACL injury which further results in an altered Q-angle.
