Abstract: Aim: A Comparative Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Buerger Allen Exercise and Lower Extremity Strengthening Exercise among Subjects with type II diabetes mellitus at selected hospital in Puducherry. Objectives: 1) To assess the level of lower extremity tissue perfusion among subjects with type II diabetes mellitus in group I, group II and control group in pretest. 2) To evaluate the effectiveness of Buerger Allen exercise on level of lower extremity tissue perfusion among subjects with type II diabetes mellitus in group I. 3) To evaluate the effectiveness of LESE on level of lower extremity tissue perfusion among subjects with type II diabetes mellitus between pretest and posttest in group II 4) To compare the effectiveness of Buerger Allen exercise and LESE on the level of lower extremity tissue perfusion among subjects with type II diabetes mellitus in group I, group II and control group. Materials and Methods: In a study 150 samples selected by using purposive sampling technique and assigned to the experimental group-I (n=50), group (n=50) and control group (n=50). The experimental group I was received Burger Allen exercise, group II received LESE. Results: Analysis of the results showed that Burger Allen exercise, LESE has a significance (p<0.001) on level of lower extremity tissue perfusion among type II diabetes and these findings are consistent with previous research studies. Conclusion: The Buerger Allen interventions were proven and highly effective in improving level of lower extremity tissue perfusion.
