Effectiveness of Buerger Allen Exercise on Lower Extremity Perfusion and Pain among Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Selected Hospitals in Chennai
Abstract: A quasi experimental study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of Buerger Allen exercise on lower extremity perfusion and pain among patients with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus admitted in selected hospitals, Chennai. It was conducted among 60 samples with type 2 diabetes mellitus by using non probability purposive sampling technique. Pre test was conducted to assess the level of pain and lower extremity perfusion and Buerger Allen exercise was administered for the experimental group for a period of five days and post test was conducted on the sixth day. Comparison of pre and post test findings showed that in the experimental group, the mean score of level of lower extremity pain was reduced from 4.33 to 1.30. The reduction of pain was statistically significant difference at 1 % level of significance (p=0.001). The mean score of level of lower extremity perfusion was increased from 44.50 to 52 and it showed a statistically significant difference at 1 % level of significance (p=0.001).
