Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this study was the surveying of Relationship between flat foot deformity with Q angle and knee pain in Iranian freestyle wrestlers.

Material and methods: For executing this study, twenty subjects from Iranian national wrestlers with mean age 19.11 ± 0.86 yrs, weight 70.5 ± 18.4 kg, height 173.2 ± 9.1 cm, sportive experience were selected. Navicular depression (with Brody method), goniometer and pain score used for flat foot, Q angle and knee pain measurement. Pearson correlation coefficient was used for statistical analysis (α ≤ 0.05).

Results: Results indicated that there is significant relationship between flat foot deformity and knee pain in wrestlers (r=0.686). There is significant relationship between Q angle increasing in dominant leg and knee pain (r=0.949). Also there is significant relationship between Q angle increasing in dominant leg and flat foot deformity (r=0.278).

Discussion and conclusion: With regard to this study results, we concluded that based on kinetic chain system, flat foot deformity may resulted in patella lateral rotation and Q angle increasing that this agents fortunately resulted in knee pain.
