73 participants in 2 patient groups

Group A
Active Comparator group
Description:
• Group A (control group) will receive routine physical therapy involving muscle strengthening exercises, range of motion exercises, and stretching exercises up to the patient's tolerance. Other exercises will be pelvic bridging, rolling, sitting and standing exercises, walking practice and balancing in parallel bars, and wobble board exercises. Each session will be of 60 minutes 5 times weekly for 6 weeks
Treatment:
Other: Routine physical therapy
Group B
Experimental group
Description:
Group B (experimental group) will receive routine physical therapy for 20 minutes and additionally PNF technique (rhythmic initiation, and then agonistic reversals will be performed in lower extremity in D1 flexion pattern and D1 extension pattern up to patient's tolerance and core strengthening for 20 minutes 5 times weekly for 6 weeks. The outcome measure will be measured at and 6th week interval
Treatment:
Other: core strengthening exercises
