Abstract

Background: gait and motor disturbances are common among multiple sclerosis patients. Objective: to measure difference between the effect of Cawthorne Cooksey and vestibular habituation exercises on trunk kinetics and velocity of gait in patients with multiple sclerosis. Methods: Forty five subjects with multiple sclerosis were assigned into three equal groups. Subjects were assessed using Biodex isokinetic dynamometer and clinical test (Timed 10-Meter Walk Test). Results: This study revealed that trunk flexors torque and self-selected velocity are significantly improved in three groups with the best results for group II. Conclusion: Cawthorne Cooksey Exercises could be considered a valuable method for improving trunk kinetics and velocity of gait in multiple sclerosis patients.
