The Effectiveness of Movement with Mobilization in Management of Tennis Elbow

Dr. Gunarathna K.


Abstract: Background and purpose: Tennis elbow is the inflammation of lateral epicondyle which causes pain, reduced grip strength and in turn affects the daily activities of the subjects. Many studies have been done to evaluate the effectiveness of traditional treatment on lateral epicondylitis. But very few studies identify the relative benefit of each treatment approaches on outcome measures and on comparing their effects. The purpose of the study is to find out the effectiveness of movement with mobilization in the management of lateral epicondylitis. Subjects: 06 subjects with Symptomatic Lateral Epicondylitis were included. Method: Group A (n=3): Grip strength of patients was assessed by using hand held dynamometer and pain assessment was done using VAS scale. Patients received pulsed Ultrasound therapy with a frequency of 1.2W/cm2 for 5min given at the teno-periosteal junction of ECRB followed by mulligan mobilization. Group B (n=3): Grip strength of patients was assessed using hand held dynamometer and pain assessment was done using VAS scale. Patients received ultrasonic therapy with a frequency of 1.2W/cm2 for 5min given at the teno-periosteal junction of ECRB followed by cryotherapy and exercises. In addition, both the groups received a graduated exercise therapy regimen including stretching exercises and progressive resisted exercises (PRE?s). 10 treatment sessions are given. Each session lasts for approximately 30minutes. Result: Patients showed statistically significant reduction of pain and improvement in grip strength in Group A. Conclusion: The study found that the group which received mulligan mobilization showed a significant improvement in grip strength and pain relief in short span of time when compared to the other group to which physiotherapy modalities like ultrasound therapy, cryotherapy and exercises were given.
