Experimental: Balance exrercise and ankle taping
Balance Exercises:Balance exercises for 6 weeks, 3 sessions per week and each session was 40 minutes for training group.
Ankle taping: Ankle joint taping was performed for 6 weeks and was renewed three times a week.
Other: Balance exercise and ankle taping
Balance Exercises: The first group performed balance exercise which last for six weeks, 3 times a week, and 40 minutes each session. Each session started by several minutes of slow walking and progressive stretching of ankle, knee and hip muscles which was gradually increased in time and repetition. After that, balance exercises were performed.
Ankle taping: In second group Ankle joint taping continued for 6 weeks and was renewed three times a week.
- Stability Index [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]Biodex Balance System: It is possible to quantify the neuromuscular control performance by evaluating subject's ability in single and double leg balance on a stable or unstable surface. This system can be used to do exercises in order to increase kinesthetic abilities and improve proprioception.
- zone and quadrant [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]In balance testing which quadrant and zone are used by subjects.
- BMI [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]The height of the subjects measured by a meter with 1 cm accuracy and a digital weighting scale used for measuring subjects
