Abstract

Background: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when median nerve is compressed as it travels through the wrist.
The syndrome is characterized by pain in the hand, numbness, and tingling in the distribution of the median nerve
and leads to reduction in grip strength and hand function. Stage II Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when patient
is involved in activities of repetitive movement of wrist during day. The study aimed to compare functional
improvement in results after treating with Extinguishing manual therapy techniques and Upcoming manual
therapy techniques.
Materials and Methods: In this experimental study 30 dentists having Stage II Carpal Tunnel Syndrome were
treated first with extinguishing manual therapy techniques (Phase I) for 10 days and then there was a gap of
1 week to decondition the effects of Phase I. After deconditioning same group of patients were treated with
Upcoming manual therapy techniques for 10 days. In both the Phases Conservative therapy was also included.
Patient specific activity scoring scheme and Boston scale were used to compare the results.
Conclusion: The study concluded that Upcoming manual therapy are more effective than extinguishing manual
therapy techniques in treating dentists having Stage II Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
