Fascial manipulation is an effective tool in the management of the musculoskeletal disorders. This can be used to address pain, grip strength, functional performance in tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis patients) patients. The specific objective of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of fascial manipulation in tennis elbow its role in decreasing pain , improving the grip strength and overall functional performance is also evaluated. A total of twenty samples participated in the study. Reduction in pain intensity was significant, gaining the fascial connection of the neuromusculoskeletal system may also assist patients in accepting why movement of body parts distant from the site of symptoms may be used as a treatment approach to manipulate fascial tissues. Fascial manipulation techniques are passive manipulations on selected points that focus on restoring the ability of the fascial system to tolerate the normal compressive, friction, and tensile forces associated with daily and sport activities. Question: Role of fascial manipulation in management of chronic lateral epicondylitis. Design: Pre –post experimental study design. Participants: Chronic lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) who have pain, decreased grip strength and disturbed functional performance in the Age group 25-40 include both sexes (male and female). Intervention: Fascial manipulation technique on two centers of coordination and one center of fusion, stretching and ultrasound therapy. Outcome measures: Pain and functional performance using Patient Rated Tennis Elbow Evaluation (PRTEE) questionnaire, grip strength was measured using hand dynamometer. Results and conclusion: The result concluded that fascial manipulation is more effective than ultrasound therapy with stretching in the management of lateral epicondylitis subjects and hence it can be effectively used to reduce pain, increase grip strength and functional performance in lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) patients.
