Abstract
THE EFFECT OF PHYSIOTHERAPY AND REHABILITATION ON PAIN, KINESIOPHOBIA, AND FUNCTIONALITY IN UPPER EXTREMITY BURNS



Mine Seyyah , Semra Topuz2
ABSTRACT
OBJECTIVE: This study was conducted to examine the effect on pain, kinesiophobia, and functionality of physiotherapy programs applied to upper extremity burn injuries.
METHODS: A record was made of age, gender, burn type, burn percentage, burn localization and burn depth of individuals with upper extremity burns. A total of 30 sessions of physiotherapy and rehabilitation program were applied to the patients five days a week for six weeks. Before the physiotherapy and rehabilitation program and after 6 weeks of treatment, pain intensity was evaluated with the Visual Analog Scale (VAS), kinesiophobia with the Tampa Kinesiophobia Scale, and upper extremity functions using the QuickDASH (Disabilities of the Arm Shoulder and Hand).
RESULTS: Evaluation was made of a total of 16 patients, comprising 2 females (12.5%) and 14 males (87.5%) with a mean age of 38.44±7.62 years. The most common type of burn was flame burn (75%), and the mean total burn surface area was 12.94±9.81%. A statistically significant difference was observed in pain, kinesiophobia, and upper extremity functions when the values before and after treatment were compared (p<0.05).
CONCLUSION: It is emphasized that the physiotherapy and rehabilitation program applied in the early period of upper extremity burn injuries improves pain, kinesiophobia, and upper extremity functions.
