The Effect of Nervous Tissue Mobilization on Pinch & Grip Strength

Dr. Dabholkar Tejashree | Dabholkar Ajit S

Abstract: Background & Purpose of the Study: hand is important sensory part our body. Nervous tissues needs to be in optimum functional state for various hand functions. Nervous tissue mobilization has been reported to be an effective intervention for conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome though benefits are still under research. The effect of nervous tissue mobilization on varius hand functions is not studied. Thus this study aims at doing so.1. Effect of nervous tissue mobilization on grip and pinch strength.2. Effect of nerve specific mobilization on grip & pinch strength. Methodology: subjects with only single positive neural tissue tension test were included in the study whereas those with Previous history of any neurological & musculoskeletal pathology were excluded from study. Outcomemeasures: pinch strength by using pinch meter, grip strength using Jamar hand dynamometer.60 subjects were randomly assigned into three groups median nerve, ulnar nerve & radial nerve bias groups. All patients were evaluated for baseline data of the above mentioned outcome measure. Results: Data analyzed using paired t test. Extremely significant improvement seen in Pinch & Grip strength (p-
