Background: Proprioception, as the perception of positions and movements of the body segments in relation
to each other, without the aid of vision, touch or the organs of equilibrium1,6.
Objective: The main objective of this study is to focus on the difference between the effect of eccentric
exercise vs concentric exercise when combined with wobble board exercise on proprioception of knee joint
after inducing fatigue in quadriceps muscle.
Study Design: Experimental Study.
Methods: In this experimental studytotal 40 subjects were selected by convenient sampling and divided into
two groups. Subjects of both groups were selected according to Inclusion/Exclusion criteria and informed
consent were taken from all subjects and methodological protocol was introduced and applied to subjects
and statistical analysis is done with the help of unpaired-t test.
Results: There were significant differences seen in that eccentric and concentric exercises with wobble
board exercise are very effective in improving proprioception. But eccentric exercise with wobble board
exercise has better effect in improving proprioception.
Conclusion: It is concluded that fatigue decreases the proprioception and eccentric exercise with wobble
board exercise give better result to improve proprioception.
