Clinical Trial Summary

- This study will be conducted to answer the following question: Is there a statistically significant effect of chitosan phonophoresis on ulnar nerve conduction velocity, pain level & function in patients with mild to moderate cubital tunnel syndrome? - Fifty-four subjects suffering from mild to moderate cubital tunnel syndrome according to modified McGowan grading system (Palmer & Hughes, 2010) from both sexes diagnosed clinically by electromyography will be recruited for this study. The Age of the participants will range from 20 - 40 years old. Participants with Body mass index between 18.5 and 24.9kg/m2. EMS physio Ltd ultrasound device will be used in combination with chitosan nanoparticles gel. Electrodiagnostic test will be performed for ulnar nerve conduction velocity using Neuropack S1 MEB-9004 NIHON KODEN, JAPAN. Visual analogue scale (VAS) will be used to determine pain level. Quick DASH will be used to determine hand function.Patients will have 3 sessions per week for 5 weeks.
