“…The results of OSI of SCD participants during two leg stance at stability level 6 had revealed significant improvement in the postural control with p < 0.05. This finding agrees with the results of Brech et al [21] who had studied the effect of physiotherapy program on 17 patients who have LeggCalve-Perthes disease with hip AVN. Whereas in this study, the number of the treatment sessions is decreased from 24 sessions to 12 sessions along a period that extend for 6 weeks with utilizing a moderate exercise intensity on a bigger number of participants.…”
