About

Daily living activities are an essential part of a child's development, providing endless opportunities for play, learning, and imaginative expression. The desired result as the child get bored after a while so we use it for benefits. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation is a stretching technique utilized to improve muscle elasticity and has been shown to have a positive effect on active and passive range of motions. In clinical settings, PNF is already utilized by therapists to restore functional range of motion (ROM) and increase strength in patients who have sustained soft tissue damage or received invasive surgeries.

Full description

This Randomized clinical trial study will be conducted in THQ hospital Arifwala/DHQ pakpattan with calculated sample size 26. Study will be approved by ethical committee. After that informed consent will be taken and patients will be randomly assigned to (Group A) control group these individuals will receive Maitland's mobilization with everyday object activities (Group B) experimental group (these individuals will receive baseline treatment and PNF technique ) frequency will be 5 session per week of 30 min and duration is of 4 weeks. Ranges will be assessed by Goniometry DASH outcome measure scale will use to assess functional activity. Data will be analyzed by SPSS latest version.
