Elbow joint this is synovial joint of the hinge variety. 1Articular upper surface: - The Capitulum and trochlea of the humerus. Lower: - 1upper surface of the radius articulates with the Capitulum. 2 Trochlear notch of the ulna articulates with trochlea of the humerus. The elbow joint is continuous with superior radioulnar joint are together known as Cubital articulation. Ligaments: - (1) Capsular ligament (2) anterior ligament (3) ulnar collateral ligament (4) radial collateral ligament. Clinically available for diagnostic of lateral epicondylitis are Cozen test and mill’s test. Ultrasound has been used most commonly in the management of the lateral epicondylitis. Continuous Mode upon tissues increases the blood flow and Reduce muscle spam. Increase extensibility of collagen fiber and decrease the inflammatory response in order to relieve epicondylitis. Taping techniques are also used for lateral epicondylitis. Maximal muscle strain on the extensor carpi radialis brevis is obtained with elbow extension, forearm in pronation and wrist in flexioulnar deviation.
AIM: To find out the effect of ultrasound and taping techniques in a patient with lateral epicondylitis.
Methodology: Study design: Experimental study Study setting: stuti physiotherapy clinic, Ahmadabad Sampling: convenient sample technique Sapling size: 40 Study duration: 4 weeks Study population: both male and female 25 to 45 age group
Results: There was significant between pre and post PRTEE inpatient with lateral epicondylitis.
Conclusion: From the result of the present study, it can be concluded that the ultrasound and taping techniques are decreases the pain and improve function ability level in patient with lateral epicondylitis.
