Abstract:

COPD is preventable and treatable disease with progressive airway restriction. There is reduced physical activity in COPD and also it is associated with reduced peripheral and respiratory muscle weakness hence the present study is conducted with the aim to determine the effect of low intensity closed kinematic chain exercise along with pulmonary rehabilitation in COPD. A Randomised control trial was carried out on 22 samples with COPD. The individuals were selected based on inclusion and exclusion criteria and were divided into 2 groups. Group A was treated with low intensity CKC exercise along with pulmonary rehabilitation and Group B was treated with only pulmonary rehabilitation program. Study place was OPD Krishna college of Physiotherapy, Karad. The protocol was given for 6 weeks (3 times per week.). The outcome measures were 6 minute walk test, time up and go test for balance and maximal voluntary contraction. There was statistically significant improvement in group A as compared to Group B. The six minute walk test distance was significantly improved in group A as compared to group B (p=0.0256). The balance was improved in group A as compared to Group B (p=0.0069). The study concluded that the Low intensity closed kinetic exercises should also be implemented in routine pulmonary rehabilitation for better functional outcome in individuals with COPD
