Background: The purpose of this study was to find out the effect of open and closed kinematic chain ankle exercise on improving balance and proprioception.
Aim:This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of open and closed kinematic chain ankle exercises on improving proprioception and balance. The study emphasizes the effect of balance, proprioception.
Methods:The objective of the study was approached with Systematic review study design and database used to look for articles include Cochrane Library Trials, PubMed Central, PEDro, Rehab data, Research Gate, and SAGE Journals. We collected 134 articles between the year1989to 2020 and analysed stratergiocally using PRISMA guideline and 3 were selected for analysis based on its relevance with selection procedures.
Result:The studies included investigated the prevalence of reduced balance, proprioception,open and closed kinematic exercises .
Conclusion:The study showed that there mightis an marginal effect of open and closed kinematic chain ankle exercise on improving proprioception, balance and further studies are needed to prove its significance.
