study description: Forty-five patients from Level 1 and 2 according to the Brooke Lower Extremity Functional Classification were included in the study. Balance was assessed by Pediatric Berg Balance Test (PBBT), Timed and Go Test (TUGT), and standing on one leg test. Kinesiology taping (KT) with facilitation technique was applied on bilateral quadriceps and tibialis anterior muscles and the assessments were repeated 1 hour after application. The comparison between before and after taping was analyzed.
- Balance Test-Timed up and go test [ Time Frame: About 15 seconds ]
Timed up and go test is a valid and practical objective measure for the pediatric population that measuring various components such as walking speed, postural control, functional mobility and balance. The children were asked to stand up from a chair, walk during 3 meters, turn, and walk back to chair and sit down. This time was recorded as second
- Pediatric Berg Balance Test [ Time Frame: 15 minutes ]
Pediatric Berg Balance Test is a modified version of the Berg Balance Scale that a valid and reliable test for the elderly population, for children in school age with mild to moderate motor impairment. The patients were asked to maintain their balance at the positions indicated in the test. The score of each item varies according to the parameters of the test. The score of this test is between 0-4 and the highest total score is 56.
- duration in standing on one leg [ Time Frame: about 1 minute ]
Duration in standing on right and left leg was recorded as second
DDMD diagnosis being Level I and II according to Brooke Lower Extremity Functional Classification no cooperation problem no injury or orthopedic/neurologic surgery within the past 6 months no severe contracture at ankle
children who did not meet the above criteria were not included
