Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to evaluate how well massages with olive oil and mustard oil affected the way that arthritis sufferers perceived their pain. Purposive sampling was used in conjunction with a quasi-experimental, non-randomized control group design to carry out the investigation. Information was gathered from arthritis patients who met the requirements for inclusion using the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index Scale (1964) Modified (WOMAC). Study groups I and II had mean post-test scores on pain perception of 47.60 and 38.00, respectively. The result of the unpaired "t" test was 3.567, meaning that it was highly significant at p≤0.01, p≤0.001, and significant at p≤0.05. It demonstrated that both olive oil and mustard oil massages were successful in lowering the sense of pain, with mustard oil massage being more successful than olive oil massage.
