ABSTRACT

Background and purpose: The purpose of the study is effects of cryotherapy on the intrinsic muscle strength of the hand using modified sphygmomanometer.Therapeutic use of ice has clinical applications both in rehabilitation and other areas of medicine. Cryotherapy has been show to decrease increase and not impact torque production which requies isometric strength of intrinsic and extrinsic muscles of hand. Till date few studies have been conducted to see the carry over effect of cryotherapy on intrinsic muscle. The objective of the study was to find out the effectiveness of cryotherapy on intrinsic muscle strength using modified sphygmomanometer.

Methodology: 50 subjects with age group 17-23 were participated in this study. This study clinically implied to find out the immediate and carry over effect of cryotherapy on intrinsic muscle strength of hand using modified sphygmomanometer.

Result: There is significant increase in intrinsic muscle strength immediately after the cryotherapy application. There is significant decrease in intrinsic muscle strength after 15-30 minutes of ice immersion. After 30-45 minutes it continuously decreased of hand strength.

Conclusion: The study concluded that muscle strength is increased at immediately after immersion of 100-150 cold water.
