A muscle spasm can be clarified as an automatically and persuasively contracted muscle that doesn't relax. Muscle squeezing of the feet, and legs is genuinely basic on hemodialysis. The reason for muscle squeezing is not known. Nonetheless, three conditions that appear to increment squeezing are hypotension, the patient being underneath dry weight and utilization of low sodium dialysate arrangement. Allen practices for the confined muscle is the best treatment, May help in on the other hand crushing and delivering the confined muscle. This mechanical plying reestablishes blood stream and for the most part assists with loosening up the fit and snugness. Hence the study aimed to assess the effectiveness of Allen exercise in reduction of muscle cramps among hemodialysis patients. Quasi Experimental research design was employed with 80 samples which matched the inclusion criteria were selected by convenience sampling technique. Demographic variables data were collected by using a structured interview questionnaire followed by assessing the muscle cramps by using the Ashworth muscle cramps scale. The findings of the study clearly infers that the Allen Exercise administered to hemodialysis patients was found to be effective in reducing the level of muscle cramps among hemodialysis patients in the post test of experimental group than the hemodialysis patients in the control group.
