KUMARI, R., & SHARMA, S. (2024). EFFECT OF MUSCLE ENERGY TECHNIQUE AND MUSCLE STIMULATOR FOR POST COLLES FRACTURE PATIENT: A CASE REPORT. SALT Journal of Scientific Research in Healthcare, 4(1), 32–37. https://doi.org/10.56735/saltjsrh.ms2404013237


Objective: This case study aims to assess the efficacy of Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and Muscle Stimulator (MS) in managing post-Colles fracture complications.

Methods: A systematic review of literature published between 2008 and 2023 was conducted utilizing PubMed, Web of Science, and Google Scholar databases. The study focused on investigating the effects of MET and MS in post-Colles fracture rehabilitation.

Results: The review revealed significant evidence demonstrating the positive impact of MET and MS on improving the health outcomes of individuals suffering from complications following Colles fractures. Various publications, including systematic reviews, randomized control trials, and case studies, highlighted the benefits of these interventions in reducing post-fracture complications.

Conclusion: The findings suggest that MET and MS can effectively enhance range of motion, increase muscle strength, and alleviate complications associated with post-Colles fractures. Implementing these modalities as part of a comprehensive treatment protocol can help mitigate stiffness and improve overall rehabilitation outcomes.
