the purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of mulligan's pain releasing phenomenon versus kinesio-taping in de'quervains tenosynovitis.


30 subjects diagnosed with dequervains disease were included in this study. The mean age was 26.5 years. This subjects were allocated by chit method into 2 groups (group A-Therapeutic Ultrasound, mulligan's pain releasing phenomenon, group B-Therapeutic Ultrasound, Kinesio taping). Before and after the treatment protocol the subjects were assessed for pain by VAS, Grip strength by handheld dynamometer and wrist functional mobility by PRWE scale. These outcome measures were analysed.


Pre and post treatment protocol was analysed by using paired and unpaired t test. Data analysis showed extremely significance for VAS (p=0.0003) and PRWE(p=0.0002) but wasn't significant for hand held dynamometer (p=0.7759).


The effect of the combination of Ultrasound &Pain releasing phenomenon has extremely significant effect on pain and functional status of wrist than compared to ultrasound and kinesio taping.
