Results were analysed using a three‐way analysis of variance, with group (I and II) as the between‐subjects factor, and time (before and after treatment) and side (affected leg and unaffected leg) as the within‐subjects factors. When an interaction was significant, simple main effects tests were performed—that is, effects of one factor, holding the other factor fixed.
