ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Aerobics dance is said to have an effect on the psychological, behavioural and emotional responses. The literature shows high level of perceived stress among students. Hence, this study is aimed at evaluating the effect of Dance Aerobics on Stress in Physiotherapy students by using PSS score, Clinical parameters and EMG Biofeedback activity. OBJECTIVES: the objectives of this study are to assess the Perceived Stress in physiotherapy students with assessment of PSS, clinical parameters and EMG Biofeedback activity and to evaluate the effect of Dance Aerobics on perceived stress clinical parameters and EMG Biofeedback in physiotherapy students. METHODS: 122 voluntarily participating physiotherapy students were assessed and PSS score was taken. Experimental study design carried out on 46 students who were meeting the inclusion criteria. Outcome measures were Pulse Rate, Respiratory Rate, Blood Pressure, EMG Biofeedback Activity and Perceived Stress Scale. RESULT: The pre mean Systolic BP was 119.4 (±6.29) mmHg, the post (±5.79) mmHg and p value is 0.010. The pre mean of Diastolic BP was 79.26 (3.35±) mmHg, the post 78.39 (4.08±) mmHg and p value is 0.202). The pre mean of Pulse Rate was 77.04 (5.38±) bpm, the post mean was 73.28 (4.56±) bpm and p value is p<0.001. The pre mean of Respiratory Rate was 19.72 (±), post mean was 18.85(±)and p value is 0.011. Perceived Stress Scale Score pre mean for screened participants was 25 (±4.07), post mean 17.65 (±4.85) and p<0.001. EMG Biofeedback Activity pre mean was 33.59 (±14.2), post mean was 18.76(±7.03) and p value <0.001. CONCLUSION: Thus, this study concludes that there is significant reduction of Perceived Stress, Clinical Parameters and EMG Biofeedback Activity by Dance Aerobics Intervention on stress among physiotherapy students.
