Publication date: Nov 27, 2019

The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of physiotherapy and rehabilitation program on hand involvement of patients with scleroderma and to compare the effects of home rehabilitation program and rehabilitation program under physiotherapist supervision. At the end of the study, the rehabilitation program under the supervision of physiotherapist and home exercise program will be compared with the effects of these applications on range of motion, grip strength, function and sensation. Since there are a limited number of randomized controlled studies in the literature on this subject and there is no randomized controlled clinical study on the superiority of physiotherapist supervision and home program, it will contribute to the information regarding the rehabilitation of scleroderma patients.
