|Abstract:||The study compared the effectiveness of therapeutic exercise and electric stimulation to increase the range of motion on Sciatic Nerve Injection Injury (SNII). The pretest post-test design was employed. Subjects were thirty SNII patients aged 3-8 years. They were randomly assigned to three treatment groups: Therapeutic Exercise, Electrical Stimulation and, Therapeutic Exercise and Electrical Stimulation. Rehabilitation was carried out in selected Physiotherapy departments three times a week for twelve weeks. Statistics of mean, standard deviation and frequency of occurrence were used to describe the data. Inferential statistics of correlation t-test was analysis between pretest and post-test in. each group revealed that therapeutic exercises has a significantly positive effect on the range of motion in the affect angle joint. Lastly, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) used in analyzing the difference among the three groups revealed the therapeutic exercise war more effective than electrical stimulator in the management of SNII. But the effect was multiplied among group where the two modalities were combined.|
