INTRODUCTION : Neck pain is the common problem in all over the countries. It occurs any age group Individuals due to many causes like trauma, poor posture, pathological and ergogenic problems. Levator scapulae muscles trigger points also produce neck pain and shoulder pain.Levator scapulae located on each side of the neck situated posteriorly. It named for its action in“ Elevating” or “lifting” the scapulae. In Greek word , Levator means “To lift”. Levatorscapulae muscle arise from posterior tubercle of transverse process of first four cervical vertebrae. It is inserted into the medial border of superior angle of scapulae. Levator scapulae muscle is blood supplied by dorsal scapular artery and nerve supply is third, fourth cervical nerve and Dorsal scapular nerve(C5). Levator muscles act along with trapezius to shrug the shoulder by its raising of the Scapula. If the scapula fixed the muscle assist in cervical extension and used alone flex the neck Laterally to one side. OBJECTIVE : To find out the effectiveness of ischemic compression and taping technique to reduce pain in levator scapulae trigger point related neck pain. CONCLUSION : An experimental study was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of Ischemic compression and taping technique to reduce pain in levator scapulae related neck pain patients. 20 patients were selected in this study consecutive manner. The levator scapulae trigger point pain assessed by Visual Analogue Scale. The limited Range of Motion of cervical pain assessed by goniometer. The statistical result shows that the ischemic compression and taping technique is effective for the reduction of pain in levator scapulae trigger point related neck pain patients.
