Abstract

Kneading is a form of massage that involves a gradual circular compression of the soft tissues under the bones.
Great pressure is applied as the hands move closer, although the contact continues. Stirring stimulates the flow
of tissue fluids and causes reflex vasodilatation. This reduces inflammation and helps resolve inflammation.
Exercising vigorously reduces muscle cramps and can stretch the muscles shortened by injury and stimulates
the nervous system which can produce calm and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Objectives of the study:
To assess the level of joint pain among the elderly prior to the initiation of the mixing procedure in the study
group. To evaluate the effectiveness of the mixing procedures at the level of joint pain among the elderly in the
study group. Comparison of post-test pain scores reported between older adults between the study group and
the control group. Finding a link between the level of joint pain between older people and their chosen variables.
The scientist has developed a method of multidisciplinary research research and experimental style for sixty
seniors living in the Panipat valley in a way that is easily accessible. The Modified Extremities Functional Scale
is designed to measure a patient’s joint pain. Results: In the evaluation group the pain assessment rate showed
that (56.67%) the subject had minimal pain, (43.33%) the subject had moderate joint pain and none of the subjects
(0%) had significant pain, severe pain and no pain. respectively while the control group (43.33%) the subject had
