ENTRAPMENT NEUROPATHIES OF THE UPPER EXTREMITIES AND NEW TRENDS IN PHYSIOTHERAPY
Purpose. The purpose of this work was to highlight the importance of targeted physiotherapy in the treatment of nerve entrapment syndrome in the upper limb using the latest physiotherapeutic techniques.
Material and methods. In this work, 56 patients are presented as diagnosed with nerve entrapment syndrome in the upper limb. 45 of them are women and 21 are men, ranging in age from 26–72 years old with an average age of 49 years. We evaluated the pain condition, pain intensity, and also functional deficits before and after rehabilitation treatment over a duration of four weeks.
Conclusion. As a result of targeted therapy towards nerve entrapment syndrome in the upper limb, the functional condition of the majority of our patients has improved and their pain was reduced.
The expected mechanism of this kind of physiotherapy is to improve blood circulation in the affected area, adjust the biomechanical forces that affect joint structures, improve the functional condition, and prevent a relapse of the disease from occurring.
