Nihar Ranjan Mohanty and Shyamal KoleyAbstract:
The endeavour of the present study was to establish simplified methods to measure Patellar anatomical and biomechanical variables. 100 state level runners (50 males and 50 females) of age group 18-27 years were selected purposively from various sports academies of Odisha for this study. All the variables were recorded thrice and median value considered as criterion to eradicate error. Selected variables such as patella length, patella breadth, patellar tendon length, patella to patellar tendon ratio, patellar medial to lateral glide, patellar lateral to medial glide, patellar cephal to caudal glide and patellar caudal to cephal glide were measured on each subject following standard techniques. The Results showed highly significant differences (p<0.001) in right patella length, right patella breadth, right patellar tendon length, and statistically significant difference (p<0.05) was seen in right patellar cephal to caudal glide on the right patellar side. However, in the left patellar side highly statistically significant differences (p<0.001) were seen in left patella length, left patella breadth, left patellar tendon length, left patellar cephal to caudal glide.Pages: 214-219 | 365 Views 20 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
