Background: Pes planus deformity of the feet alters the lower limb biomechanics and associated with change in tibiofemoral angle of the knee and there is lack of evidence suggest the correlation between pes planus and genu valgum in young adults so this study focusing on correlation between pes planus and genu valgum.
Purpose: Purpose of the study is to determine correlation between pes planus and genu valgum in young adults.
Methods: with inclusion and exclusion criteria 40 subjects with flat foot assessed by using navicular drop test and tibiofemoral angle assessed by 360- degree goniometer and the obtained data is recorded in data collection form.
Results: The Correlation between ND[R] and TFA[R] is -0.07921204, meaning the relationship is negatively weak, further the variables are moving in opposite direction. The Correlation between ND[L] and TFA[L] is 0.005061076, meaning the relationship is positively weak, further the variables are moving in the same direction.
Conclusion: Statistical analysis concludes right pes planus increases leads to decrease in right genu valgum and, left pes planus increases leads to increase in left genu valgum. DOI: 10.22271/kheljournal.2022.v9.i1g.2401Pages: 403-406 | 531 Views 213 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
