Abstract
Background and Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of Suboccipital release and Mckenzie exercise in reducing pain and disability in patients with Non-specific neck pain.
Materials and Methods: A total of 30 non-specific neck pain patients were conveniently assigned to either a Group A (Suboccipital release) (n=15) or in a Group B (Mckenzie exercise) (N=15). Both group (age – 20 to 40 years) underwent 45 minutes per treatment session, 3 days in a week for 4 weeks. The outcome measures were evaluated at pre and post intervention by using VAS and CNFDS.
Results: The pre and post test scores were assessed by VAS and CNFDS in Group A and Group B. The calculated ‘t’ values by unpaired ‘t’ test values shown significant effects in Group A on VAS and CNFDS respectively.
Conclusion: There is a significant reduction in pain and disability, so it indicates that Suboccipital release is effective in Non-specific neck pain patients.
