ABSTRACT

Cervical radiculopathy (CR) is a common clinical condition characterized by the compression or irritation of one or more nerve roots in the cervical spine. It is typically caused by degenerative changes in the spine, such as herniated discs, bone spurs, or narrowing of the spinal canal. The objective of the study is to analyze and compare the effect of Mulligan technique and Myofascial release on pain, range of motion and neck disability in patients with CR. A total of 45 patients with CR aged 18-60 years were selected purposively for the present study. The subjects were further divided into three groups comprising of 15 patients in each group. Patients in Group-A were treated with conventional therapy only, while in Group-B, patients were treated with Mulligan technique with conventional therapy, and in Group-C, patients were treated with Myofascial Release with conventional therapy. Variables like NDI, ROM and VAS data was collected on 1st (pre- treatment) session, 7th (post treatment) and 15th (post treatment) session. The Results of present study revealed that within group changes in VAS, NDI and Range of motion were statistically significant in all groups. On the other hand, between Group-B and Group-C, there was a statistically significant improvement for the above traits, showing the superior result in Group-B. It might be concluded from the findings of the present study that Mulligan technique was statistically more effective in decreasing pain, neck disability and improving range of motion in patients with CR.

Keywords: Cervical Radiculopathy, Mulligan technique, Myofascial Release.
