The program includes physiotherapy analytical exercises for the muscles agonists, antagonists and stabilizers of the three kinetic chains of the lower limb. Before the test for evaluation of static, dynamic balance and posture control, the range of motion in the knee joint was S: 0-0-135 oh, and the assessments of MMT - 5. Despite the good performance, test scores are lower than those of 20 healthy men aged 20 to 30.
