Mechanical neck pain is also known as nonspecific neck pain. It is also defined as generalized neck pain provoked by sustained neck posture, neck movement, pain on palpation of cervical musculature without pathologies. Aim of the study is to compare the effectiveness of Muscle Energy Technique and Mulligan SNAGS on pain, and active cervical range of motion for individuals with mechanical neck pain.30 subjects according to inclusion and exclusion criteria were randomly divided in to two groups for the study where, The results were analyzed by Paired t-test or Wilcoxon signed ranks test (Intra- group Comparison) and unpaired t-test or Mann-Whitney U test (Inter-group Comparison) comparing Muscle Energy Technique and Mulligan SNAGS groups for post-treatment effects. Both the groups showed effectiveness regarding to VAS and Cervical ROM. However, the group receiving MET was more effective as compared to Mulligan SNAGs, Result of the study shows that Group A which received MET and Group B which received Mulligan SNAGs have good effect in reducing pain and increasing CROM. But when both the groups are compared, the group which received MET showed better improvement that the group who received Mulligan SNAGS. Hence alternative hypothesis is accepted at p=0.001 and null hypothesis is rejected.Pages: 343-349 | 541 Views 47 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
