Abstract:

A single case study design was used to investigate the effects of ultrasound, Paraffin wax bath, Deep transverse friction massage & strengthening exercise in Stenosingtenovaginitis of thumb. Sub items hand and finger function of the Dutch version of the second version of the Arthritis Impact Measurement Scale (DUTCH AIMS-2) was used to measure Functional improvement, JAMAR Hand Grip Dynamometer was used to measure hand grip muscle strength & Visual analogue scale was used to measure pain. The study involved three phases in an ABA design. Patient was assessed at baseline(A), treatment was given for 15 days(B) and again assessed at end of session (A). The technique resulted in reduction in pain, improvement in functional ability and hand muscle strength in case of Stenosingtenovaginitis of thumb. Although single case study design limits generalization of the results, it does provide evidence of the beneficial response obtained by use of Pulse ultrasound, Paraffin wax bath, Deep friction massage & strengthening exercise in stenosingtenovaginitis of thumb patients.

Key Words : Stenosingtenovaginitis of thumb, Pulse Ultrasound, Paraffin wax bath, Deep friction massage & strengthening exercise.
