      Abstract: Prediabetic is a situation where the person’s blood sugar level is above normal but has not fully categorized as Diabetes Mellitus. The decrease of blood sugar level in prediabetes patients can be done in various methods, such as Aerobic Exercise and Resistance Exercise. This study aims to investigate the difference of the decrease blood sugar level through Aerobic Exercise and Resistance Exercise in prediabetes patients. Experimental with pre test and post test two group design is used in this study. It was conducted in Tonja sub-distict, North Denpasar in January until March 2020. The research sample is 24 people, where 21 is woman and 3 man which are randomly divided into 2 experimental groups. Experimental Group I was given Aerobic Exercise and experimental group II was given Resistance Exercise. Glucometer is used as a measurement tool in this study. Based on the result of paired t-test, there is a decrease in blood sugar level in Experimental Group I, which the average before intervention is 146,58±21,33mg/dL into 126,42±21,03mg/dL after intervention and obtained p=0,001(<0,05). In Experimental Group II, the blood sugar level is decreased, where the average before intervention is 142,33±16,71mg/dL and after intervention is 121,83±20,83mg/dL and p=0,001(<0,05). There is no significant difference in the decrease of blood sugar level between two groups with p=0,948(>0,05). The conclusion is both Aerobic Exercise and Resistance Exercise have a good effect in decreasing blood sugar level. Keywords: Aerobic Exercise; Resistance Exercise; Prediabetes; Blood Sugar

      Abstract: The increase of life expectancy theis more complex health problem is which suffered by the elderly. The problem in health which is often occurred that is instability of blood pressure which dominated by hypertension. One of methods to decrease high blood pressure is by increasing physical activity. Physical activity reduces the risk of hypertention by decreasing resistance of blood pressure and surpressing the activity in sympathetic nerves system and renin-angiotensin system. This research aims to discover Hatha Yoga training and Tai Chi traning in decreasing blood pressure in pre-elderly with grade I hypertension in Banjar Batu, Mengwi sub-distict, Badung Regency. This research used experimental design with pre test and post test two group design. Group I was given Hatha Yoga and Group II was given Tai Chi. The sample in this research is 20 people (man and woman) who suffered grade I hypertension and aged in 45-49 years old. The training was done in 3 times a week for 6 weeks. The result of the research shows that the decrease of blood pressure is shown Group I in systole is 5,60±1,43 mmHg and diastole is 4,00±1,94 mmHg, with value p=0,00. In Group II, there is a decrease in systole blood pressure is 4,90±0,99 mmHg and diastole 4,30±2,05 mmHg, with value p=0,00. There is no significant difference in the decrease of blood pressure between Group I and Group II with blood pressure in systole is p=0,378 (p>0,05) and in diastole is p=0,805 (p>0,05). The conclusion is that Hatha Yoga training is as goof as Tai Chi training in decreasing blood pressure in pre-elderly with mild hypertention.

  • The Correlation Of Body Mass Index With Grip Muscle Strength In Elderly
           Women

    • Authors: IP Darmawijaya, Putu Rara Kumbhara Vigneswari, Daryono Daryono
      Pages: 17 - 21
      Abstract: Elderly (elderly) is closely related to problems with the musculoskeletal system. With increasing age, the elderly experience an aging process that will decrease the production of synovial fluid in the joints, decrease muscle tone and decrease muscle strength. One of the decrease in muscle strength is a decrease in hand grip muscle strength. Hand grip muscle strength can be influenced by several factors, one of which is body mass index (BMI). This study was conducted in May 2021 with the aim of knowing the relationship between body mass index and hand grip muscle strength in elderly women aged 60-67 years in Kemoning Village, Klungkung Regency, Bali. The research design used was cross sectional and obtained a sample of 12 people. Hand grip muscle strength was measured using the Hand Grip Dynamometer, while body mass index (BMI) was obtained from the calculation of body weight (kg) height (m²). The results of the study used the Pearson Product Moment correlation test with the value of Sig. (2-tailed) 0.000 and correlation closeness 0.887. This shows that there is a very strong significant correlation between BMI and hand grip muscle strength in elderly women aged 60-67 years. The hand grip muscle strength of the elderly with the thin category is smaller than the normal category.

  • THE EFFECTIVENESS OF BACK MASSAGE AND ULTRASOUND THERAPY COMBINED WITH
           HOME-BASED EXERCISE IN REDUCING DISABILITY IN MECHANICAL LOW BACK PAIN

    • Authors: Putu Ayu SIta Saraswati, Sayu Aryantari Putri Thanaya, Made Hendra Satria Nugraha
      Pages: 22 - 28
      Abstract: Low back pain (LBP) is a common problem and a leading cause of disability worldwide. Mechanical LBP is a cumulative process caused by physical workloads, errors when lifting, and poor posture while working, which causes the lower back to experience heavy mechanical stress. This can result in pain and limitation of motion in the lumbar spine, thereby increasing the level of disability. The combination of ultrasound therapy with back massage is often used in general to treat mechanical LBP. The addition of home-based exercise to this combination is expected to accelerate tissue repair, reduce pain, and increase the range of joint motion, and it is expected that disability will decrease. This study aimed to compare the combination of back massage and ultrasound therapy with or without home based exercise in reducing disability due to mechanical LBP. This single blinded randomized controlled trial was conducted for 4 weeks involving 24 subjects with mechanical LBP, who were randomly assigned to a treatment group or control group. Disability due to mechanical LBP was measured using the Modified Oswestry Disability Index (MODI), which was assessed at baseline and after the last treatment was given. After treatment, between-group analysis using the independent t-test found the mean reduction of MODI score significantly different between the intervention and control group after receiving the intervention. Therefore, it can be concluded that the addition of home-based exercise to back massage and ultrasound therapy can significantly reduce disability due to mechanical LBP.

  • Senam SKJ 2004 SENAM SKJ 2004 TRAINING CAN IMPROVE PHYSICAL FITNESS

    • Authors: I Putu Astrawan, I Putu Prisa Jaya
      Pages: 29 - 36
      Abstract: Physical training is useful so that the body does not quickly experience excessive fatigue during strenuous physical activity, prevents degenerative diseases and improves health status. Physical training has an important role to maintain and improve the degree of physical fitness during this COVID-19 pandemic. This study aims to determine the Senam 2004 SKJ gymnastics training can improve physical fitness. This type of research is experimental with the randomized pretest posttest control group design. The sample of this study was 20 students of the Physiotherapy Study Program divided into 2 groups. Group 1 was given SKJ 2004 gymnastics training and Group 2 as a control group, with a frequency of exercise 3 times a week for 6 weeks. The component of physical fitness in this case is VO2Max measured by the Bleeps Test (MFT) instrument. The results of the study on age, height, weight and BMI were analyzed descriptively in both groups. Test the normality of the data using the Shapiro-Wilk Test and test the homogeneity of the data using the Levene Test. Intra-group differences in the mean of VO2Max were tested by paired t-test. The results of the different test with t-paired before and after training, the results obtained in Group 1 and Group 2 were significantly different (p <0.05). The results of the VO2Max test between the two groups before and after the training were tested using the t-independent sample test. The average VO2Max in both groups before training with p value = 0.27 (p>0.05) and after training with p value = 0.00 (p<0.05). In Group 1, the average VO2Max (L/m) before training was 26.45 and the average after training was 38.54 with a difference of 12.09 and a percentage increase of 45.70%. Meanwhile in Group 2, the average VO2Max before training was 25.51 and the average after training was 27.52 with a difference of 2.06 and the percentage increase was 8.07%. This shows that the treatment of group 1 and group 2 both gave a change effect. However, the improvement in group 1 was better than group 2. It was concluded that SKJ gymnastics training can improve physical fitness.

  • The Correlation Between Posture, Duration of Gadget Usage and Physical
           Activity during COVID-19 Pandemic to The Occurrence of Neck Pain among
           Medical Students in Udayana University

    • Authors: Cindy Thiovany Soetomo, I Dewa Ayu Inten Dwi Primayanti, Luh Putu Ratna Sundari
      Pages: 37 - 44
      Abstract: ABSTRACT Increased duration of gadget usage since COVID-19 pandemics can cause various negative impacts if implemented without considering ergonomic factors, especially body and neck posture. One of those impacts that often found is musculoskeletal disorders like neck pain due to excessive cervical flexion load. However, incidence of neck pain also affected by many other factors, such as physical activity and exercise habit. This study aims to determine the correlation between posture, duration of gadget usage, and physical activity during COVID-19 pandemic to the occurrence of neck pain among Medical Students in Udayana University. An analytical observational study was conducted with cross-sectional approach using questionnaire adapted from Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire to measure quantity and quality of neck pain of 106 medical students in Udayana University. The correlation between variables was then analyzed by Chi-square test. Results of this study showed that 77.4% of medical students in Udayana University usually use gadget '56 hours a week and 61.3% of medical students have experienced neck pain in last 12 months during COVID-19 pandemic. Analytical study showed that correlation between posture and neck pain has p-value = 0.016 (<0.05), physical activity and neck pain has p-value = 0.012 (<0.05), while duration of gadget usage and neck pain has p-value = 0.733 (>0.05). It can be concluded that there are significant correlations between posture while using gadget and physical activity to neck pain, but there is no significant correlation between duration of gadget usage and neck pain during COVID-19 pandemic among medical students in Udayana University.

  • Combination Intervention Mulligan’s Sustained Natural Apophyseal Glides
           and Ultrasounds Better Than Combination Intervention Stretching And
           Ultrasounds For Increasing Functional Activity Non-Specific Low Back Pain
           Patient

      Pages: 45 - 51
      Abstract: Abstract— Non-specific low back pain is one of the complaints that very often encountered with a picture of complaints originating without a clear cause. Non-specific low back pain is often a reason for the limitation of functional activity in patients because of pain symptoms and muscle tightness around the patient's lower back. The aim of this research is to prove that the Mulligan intervention, namely SNAGS as the latest intervention combined with physiotherapy modalities of ultrasounds, is more effective in improving the functional quality of non-specific low back pain patients than the combination of conventional stretching interventions with ultrasounds. The research method used in this study is the design of experimental research methods in the form of a pre-test and post-test two group design. In its implementation, there will be two groups with the number of each sample in each group consisting of 16 samples selected at random with the block permutation technique. Group 1 will receive conventional stretching and ultrasounds, while group 2 will receive mulligan's “sustained natural apophyseal glides” (SNAGS) and ultrasounds. The patient's functional activity was measured by the MODI (Modified Oswestry Disability Index) questionnaire. The study was conducted at a physiotherapy clinic in Denpasar. The results obtained in this study after processing the Paired T-Test test data in each group to determine whether there is a significant difference between pre and post from each combination, obtained with a p value <0.05, this indicates that there is a difference significant. The difference test between groups was carried out showing that there was a significant difference between the treatment group and the control group with the Independent T-Test test, getting a p value of <0.05 which has an interpretation of a significant difference. The conclusion obtained after the test and discussion of this study is that the mulligan intervention, namely SNAGS as the latest intervention combined with physiotherapy modalities of ultrasounds, is more effective in improving the functional quality of patients with non-specific low back pain than the combination of conventional stretching interventions with ultrasounds.   Keywords: Mulligan's SNAGS, Ultrasound, Conventional Stretching, Non Specific Low Back Pain, Decreased Functional Activity

      Abstract: Myogenic low back pain (myogenic LBP) is a back pain caused by muscles as a source of pain. Myogenic LBP can cause disability in patients. Kinesiotaping is one of the new methods used to reduce disability in myogenic LBP patients. The purpose of the study was to find out the effectiveness of adding kinesiotaping to microwave diathermy and massage interventions in lowering disability in myogenic LBP patients. The study used experimental methods with pre-test and post-test control group design. There are two randomly selected groups with block permutation techniques. The treatment group consisted of 16 samples receiving interventions in kinesiotaping, microwave diathermy and massage. The control group consisted of 16 samples received microwave diathermy and massage interventions. Disability is measured by MODI questionnaire (Modified Oswestry Disability Index). The research was conducted at a physiotherapy clinic in Denpasar. The results of the study after the Paired sample T-Test in each group with a value of p<0.05, this showed that there was a significant difference between pre-test results and post-tests in each group. The inter-group different test was conducted with the Independent sample T-Test, obtaining a p<0.05, indicating that there were significant differences between the treatment group and the control group. Microwave diathermy provides a deep heating effect so that it can increase metabolism, reduce pain, reduce spasms and increase muscle extensibility. Massage interventions are able to reduce pain through gate control theory mechanisms. Pressure on the surface of the skin also stimulates the release of endorphins that will inhibit pain impulses to the brain. Kinesiotaping has the benefits of reducing pain, joint fixation, smoothing lymph flow and muscle facilitation. With this mechanism, the addition of kinesiotaping further decreases disability in myogenic LBP patients.

      Abstract: ABSTRACT
      Cycling is a healthy exercise that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, from young children to older adults. Cycling have great attention from the health sector because of aiming to increase levels of physical activity. The main pathways between cycling and health under two perspectives generalizable evidence for health effects and specific impact modeling to quantify health impacts in concrete settings. Risks from air pollution can be assumed to be small, with limited evidence for cycling specific mechanisms. Physical activity, particularly cycling, is known to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, slow down aging, and help in reducing weight and even stress.

      Abstract: A downward trend of physical activity level within the population of college students was observed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Various adjustments within their daily habits caused changes to the population’s sleep quality and physical activity level. The purpose of this study is to research the correlation between physical activity level and sleep quality in preclinical medical students in Udayana University. This study was conducted using an analytic cross-sectional method and consecutive sampling technique involving 282 preclinical medical students of Udayana University from academic year of 2018, 2019, and 2020. The data were obtained via the scores of Global Physical Activity Questionnaire and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. The GPAQ score showed that 123 (43.6%), 127 (45%), and 32 respondents (11.4%) respectively had a low, moderate, and high level of physical activity. Meanwhile, the PSQI score showed that 102 respondents (36.2%) had a good sleep quality and 180 respondents (63.8%) had a bad sleep quality. The average PSQI score of the respondents was 5.23 (cut off = 5). The correlation between the level of physical activity and sleep quality was analyzed using the Chi-Square method and was deemed insignificant (p = 0.172; 2-sided). The majority of preclinical medical students had low-to-moderate level of physical activity and bad sleep quality. No significant correlation was found between level of physical activity and sleep quality in preclinical medical students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Further studies are needed to determine other factors that might affect physical activity level and sleep quality within the population.
