Marcelin Ancy .R, A. Aroona, Mythili .G


Abstract: Background: The erb?s palsy is a partial or total paralysis of the upper extremity due to trauma of brachial plexus during normal delivery. Purpose: To investigate the effect of Kinesio taping over the deltoid and the forearm along with exercise program on the development of proper upper extremity function in children recovering from Erb?s palsy. Objective of the study: This study to evaluate the effectiveness of kinesiology taping on along with exercise program to improve functional activity in children with erb?s palsy. Methodology: 20 children with Erb?s palsy were included in this study. There were few children were irregular attendance due to illness. So, we collect data only for the 15 patients. They received designed physical therapy program along with Kinesiotaping over the deltoid and the forearm. The duration of each session was approximately 45 minutes with adequate rest periods in between. The tape was applied for 3 days, then it removed for few hours and applied again. The exercise program along with Kinesio tape was given for 6 weeks. The study duration was 6 months. The subject was evaluated, based on pre and post test scores. Outcome measures: The outcome result was measured by using Toronto active motion scale (TAMS) BPOM- functional movement scale. Results: The study revealed that effectiveness of Kinesiotaping along with designed Physical therapy statistically significant improvement in functional activity on children with Erb?s palsy. While comparing the pre and post test scores. Conclusions: It is concluded from the study that the kinesiology tape application on the arm and the forearm muscles, along with therapeutical exercise has improved the functional activity of the upper limb in children with erb?s palsy.
