Abstract

Background Resistance exercise on various patient groups has shown improvement in muscle strength, function and overall health. Patients with lower extremity fractures are temporarily treated with skeletal traction. This treatment imposes a period of immobilization and recumbence resulting in muscle atrophy, weakness and decreased function. Resistance exercise may be low load or submaximal. This intervention can improve muscle performance and improve function.


ObjectiveThis study aims to compare the effectiveness of preoperative resistance exercise protocols on patients with lower extremity fractures treated with extended skeletal traction prior to definitive treatment.


Materials and Methods This is a randomized control trial to be conducted on patients with lower extremity fracture treated with skeletal traction under the Orthopedics and Traumatology department of the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center. A sample of 40 divided into two groups: low load resistance vs submaximal resistance exercise.
