Abstract

Background of the study: Motor coordination is associated with timed movement of several limbs or parts of body to achieve a smooth and efficient action with respect to the intended goal. This research was aimed to find the effect of coordination exercise on dynamic balance of knee injured professional male footballers with specific intervention strategies. Methodology: Total 106 professional footballers were selected on the base of inclusion and exclusion criteria. The samples were randomly divided equally in to experimental and control group for the study. The experimental group received coordination exercises and the control group received traditional stretching and strengthening exercises. Dynamic balance for right and left lower limbs were evaluated for both group. Results: Dynamic balance significantly improved in experimental group after coordination exercise. F ratio for right and left side was 42.36 and 112.31 respectively, which are more than the table value 3.024, so they are significant at 0.05 level. Conclusion: The study concluded that coordination exercise can improve dynamic balance of knee injured male professional footballers.
