Carpus channel syndrome (CCS) is one of the most common entrapment nephropathy in the higher limb, inflicting sensory and motor disturbances within the hand.
This study has been done to investigate the impact of kinesiology tape on altering pain level in patient with CCS.
Sixty CCS patients (43 females and seventeen males) with the mean age of (40.2) years were appointed haphazardly into 2 equal teams. Group A received ancient physiatrist program (strengthening and stretching exercises for radio carpus joint muscles and ligaments)with kinesiology tape for four weeks, cluster B received ancient treatment as cluster A only. Visual analogue scale, MSDL, MMDL, MMCV and MSCV by electromyography were measured pre and post treatment.
The results of the study showed that there was vital decrease in pain level, MSDL and MMDL in group-A.
CONCLUSION This study showed the practicability, safety and cheapness of the kinesiology tape as processing tool in CCS patients.
