Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To compare the effeectiveness of kinesio taping technique, myofascial release technique in decreasing pain, improving upper trapezius flexibility and improving the range of motion in subjects with myofascial pain syndrome. STUDY DESIGN: Quasi experimental study design. STUDY SETTING: Kovai Medical Mentre and Hospital, Coimbatore. SAMPLE SIZE&INTERVENTION: 30 Patients with myofascial pain syndrome who met the inclusion criteria were selected ; EXPERIMENTAL A: 10 individuals received kinesio taping technique. EXPERIMENTAL B: 10 individuals received myofascial release technique. CONTROL GROUP C: 10 individuals received conventional technique. METHODOLOGY & PROCEDURE: Quasi-experimental research design with purposive sampling technique was employed. The study was carried out in Kovai Medical Center & Research Hospital, Coimbatore for duration of 4 weeks. Thirty patients diagnosed with Myofascial pain syndrome between age group 18 – 40 years, both male & females were selected. Thirty randomly allocated into 3 groups - A & B & C of 10 samples each. Group A received kinesio tape whereas Group B received myofascial release where as Group C received exercises to be followed at home in presence of a family member. OUTCOME MEASURE: • Pain Status. • Upper extrimity questionnaire. MEASUREMENT TOOLS: • Visual analogue scale. • Upper extrimity functional index. RESULTS & CONCLUSION: The data were analyzed using paired ‘t’ tests and one way ANOVA at 5% level of significance.The results of this study concluded that kinesio taping technique is better than myofascial release technique in improving the pain and improving upper trapezius flexibility. But both techniques are effective in pain.
