Abstract

Trigger point in upper trapezius is a common cause for neck pain, reduced cervical range of motion, and affects functional activities. Objective is to compare the effectiveness of Positional release technique and Ischemic Compression on reducing pain, improving ROM, functional activities and cognitive aspects of subjects with upper trapezius trigger points. 30 subjects with upper trapezius trigger points were randomized into two groups. Group A received Positional release technique and Group B received Ischemic compression technique. The total number of treatment was for 6 days alternatively within two weeks. Outcome measure was measured by Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), cervical range of motion (CROM) and Neck Bournemouth Questionnaire. The mean values for VAS in group A and group B were2.47 and 4.20 respectively, mean values of cervical lateral flexion to the right was 36.93 and 31.86 and for cervical lateral flexion to the left were 38.67 and 33.33 respectively. For cervical extension mean was 64.07 and 60.13, for rotation to the right it was 84.33 and 81.33 and for rotation to the left mean values were 82.27 and 78.80 respectively, NBQ was 20.47 and 22.67 respectively. Positional release technique was superior to Ischemic compression technique in managing pain, ROM, functional disability and psychometric analysis in subjects with upper trapezius trigger points.
