Clinical Trial Summary

There are various exercises and manual techniques to improve balance and proprioception. Most of these manual therapy techniques are mobilization, manipulation, post-isometric relaxation, myofascial relaxation and traction massage. At the same time, it has been observed that many parameters such as range of motion, tissue tension, wound healing process and pain perception were examined in the studies in the literature, but the effects of CTM on balance and proprioception have not been investigated.

The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of CTM on balance and proprioception among healthy individuals. 40 volunteers studying in Bahcesehir University were divided into 1) exercise and 2) study (CTM with exercise) groups equally. Both exercise and study groups were instructed to perform home exercises for 2 sessions in a week for 6 weeks (12 sessions in total). Additionally, CTM was applied to the volunteers in study group for 6 weeks, 2 sessions in a week. CTM applied to the lower and the upper back, and also neck.

Balance, cervical and lumbar proprioception was measured to understand the effectiveness of the CTM. Biodex Balance System was used for evaluation of static and dynamic balance. The cervical proprioception was measured by using a cervical range of motion (CROM) device while lumbar proprioception was measured by StabilizerTM Pressure Biofeedback Unit. Additionally, heart rate and blood pressure were measured by M3 Comfort Digital blood Pressure Monitor. All measurements applied at the beginnig and end of the study.
