The Effects of Squat Exercises on the Space between the Knees of Persons with Genu-varum


Background/Objectives: The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of squat exercise on the space between the knees and a distance of global postural system of deformity. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Twenty-two volunteers took part in this study and we divided into two groups(experimental group 10, control group 12). Experimental group performed toe in squat exercise and control group performed general squat exercise. All volunteers received a total of 18 exercise session over a 6-week period (three times per week). Repeated ANOVA was used to examine the effects of the intervention on each outcome measure. Findings: The space between the knees and a distance of GPS wasgreatly reduced in the experimental group. Therefore, we have confirmed through experiments reducing a space between the knees toe-in squat, whereby we would also be helpful to ensure the treatment of genu-varum. Application/Improvements: Furthermore, based on the results of this study, the supplementation and addition of diverse exercises to correct genu-varum are considered necessary
