Dr. Sanjana M and Dr. R YatishAbstract:
Radiculopathy or nerve root pain arises from disc herniation, spinal stenosis/post operative scarring, radiating down the leg in a dermatomal pattern. This study focuses on disability, pain & ROM of spine. The study evaluates “The effectiveness of Mckenzie technique and TENS versus Neural mobilization and TENS on reducing symptoms and disability of lumbar radiculopathy. 100 patients, 50 in each group, 25-60 years. Gender- Both, with radicular pain in L4, L5and S1 dermatomes. Subjects were rehabilitated for 8 sessions. Patients were evaluated with VAS, MODI, MMST, pre & post intervention. Group-A: Mckenzie technique and TENS, Group-B: Neural mobilization and TENS. On of 8th day the result showed both groups have significant improvement but the efficacy of Mckenzie Technique and TENS was more effective in relieving pain, improving functional disability and increase in Lumbar ROM. Mckenzie and TENS is more significant than Neural mobilization and TENS in patients with Lumbar Radiculopathy.Pages: 08-13 | 210 Views 27 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
