Cover Page


Background. The article describes the application of kinesioteiping as an additional treatment for patients in the rehabilitation period after osteosynthesis of the lower jaw. Aims. To evaluate the effectiveness of kinesiotherapy in patients after osteosynthesis of the lower jaw in the rehabilitation period. Materials and methods. The nociceptive sensitivity and edema size in patients were evaluated after osteosynthesis of the lower jaw, and the durations of the rehabilitation period with and without kinesiotherapy were compared. The study involved 30 patients who were hospitalized (from January 2019 to February 2020) in the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery, Regional Clinical Hospital, Ryazan. A visual analog pain scale and a photographic protocol were used to evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology. Results. On the third day of the study, 46.6% of the patients in the control group expressed an improvement in their health. Subjectively: mouth opening restrictions of 2 cm were observed, spontaneous pain in the lower jaw was preserved, and soft tissue edema was preserved. In the study group, the results were more positive compared with the first day after surgery. On the third day, 66.6% of the patients recovered better and faster. Subjectively: the level of pain in the lower jaw decreased, soft tissue edema reduced, and the mouth opening restriction of 2 cm was preserved. Conclusion. Kinesiotherapy is an effective and well-proven additional non-drug method that allows to reduce the rehabilitation period after osteosynthesis of the lower jaw.
