The purpose of this study was to provide the changes ankle rehabilitation exercise how altered gait analysis of temporo-spatial parameters in herniated intervertebral disc patients after discectomy surgery.
The subject was 40-year-male patient who had operated due to herniated intervertebral disc. after surgery, he showed low back pain & leg pain greater 90%, but showed radiculopathy caused by an abnormal gait characteristics, 12th December 2011 for ankle rehabilitation exercise program, the patient was sent to the Y hospital spine&joint exercise center. performed temporo-saptial parameters test 3 time; pre-rehabilitation, 4 weeks after rehabilitation, and 8weeks after rehabilitation.
Rehabilitation exercise program of 8weeks improve the involved ankle range of motion, deficit rate was significantly reduced. In addition, temporo-spatial parameters and variable distribution of foot pressure was improved.
After Discectomy with radiculopathy in patients with enhancement of dorsiflexion, plantarflexion ankle rehabilitation exercise programs that applies for the case reported. increased participation in daily life and social life have to return to the postoperative rehabilitation program participation is considered very beneficial.
