Abstract

Introduction: Clinically, proprioception is evaluated by detecting the externally imposed passive movement or by the ability to reposition a joint to a predetermined position. This research was aimed to find the effect of coordination exercise on proprioception error of knee injured male professional footballers. Effectiveness of specific exercise on proprioception was assessed by photographic analysis to find the outcome. Methodology: The study was a randomized control trial. A total of 106 samples selected on the base of inclusion and exclusion criteria. The samples were randomly divided equally into experimental and control group for the study. The experimental group received coordination exercises, and the control group received traditional stretching and strengthening exercises. Results: The proprioception error for right and left knee joint found significantly reduced in experimental group after coordination exercise program. F ratio for the 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 levels. Conclusion: The study concluded that coordination exercise can improve proprioception of the knee joint among male professional footballers.
