Abstract
Abstract
Aim and objective: To screen the proprioception of the ankle joint in diabetic neuropathy patients.
Methods and Material: Primary data collection was done from Diabetic clinic using convenience sampling. 100 type II diabetic patients between the age group of 45 Ė 80 years were screened using Michigan Neuropathy Screening Instrument Questionnaire and were subjected to two clinical tests, Objective Joint Position Sense and TUG test.
Result: Objective Joint Position Sense for both the ankles were shown highly significant, (where p = 0.0001 for right ankle and p = 0.0000 6 for left ankle) meaning ankle joint proprioception was effected in diabetic neuropathy patients whereas TUG test didnít show any statistical significance in these patients.
Conclusion: The study concludes that there is adequate loss of proprioception in the ankle joint with no apparent loss of balance in patients with diabetic neuropathy.

Key words: Key Words: Proprioception, diabetic neuropathy, Michigan neuropathy screening instrument (MNSI), Objective Joint Position Sense (OJPS), Timed up go test (TUG).
