Abstract

The purpose of this appraisal was to consider the effect of ultrasound and four hourly cryotherapy application in the treatment of bicipital tendinitis. In this prospective randomized clinical assessment, Thirty individuals were enrolled in the group A, and thirty specific individuals were picked into the get-together B group. In group A, Ultrasound for 7 mins – 2:8 – 1.5 w/cm2 and for group B, Sham Ultrasound for 7 mins – 2:8 – 1.5 w/cm2 with cryotherapy for 20 min 4hourly given. Pain severity, Pressure Pain Threshold and functional disability were assessed in all participants before and after two weeks of treatment. Group A had 12 males, and 15 females and Group B had nine males and 18 females. Pre and post interventional mean and standard deviation for group A was 7.37+1.21 and 7.33+1.30. Whereas pre and post interventional mean and standard deviation for group B was 7.33+1.30 and 1.70+0.60. Pre interventional analysis of data of group A and B showed no significant difference. Whereas post interventional analysis of data showed an extremely significant difference between group A and group B. Results revealed that participants with bicipital tendinitis respond more favourably to ultrasound therapy with cryotherapy for 20min four-hourly than ultrasound alone.
