ABSTRACT

Background and Objective: The purpose of the study was to find the effectiveness of Craniosacral Therapy with Myofascial Release and conventional physiotherapy on pain and function in subjects with non specific neck pain. Methods: Quasi experimental study design. In this study, there were 80 subjects with an average age of over 20 years, a clinical diagnosis of nonspecific neck pain,, who were divided into two groups randomly. The subjects in Group A(n=40) received Craniosacral therapy with Myofascial Release ,while the subjects in Group B (n=40) received conventional physiotherapy. Intervention was given to participants 3 times a week for six weeks. The outcome measures of Group A were measured in terns of Visual Analogue Scale for pain and Neck Disability Index for function. Results: Independent “t” test was used to compare the mean significance difference between continuous variables. Paired “t” test was used to assess the statistical significance difference between pre and post test scores. Statistical analysis of this data revealed that, both groups significantly improved in both parameters when compared within groups, but when compared between groups, the Craniosacral Therapy with Myofascial Release group improved better than the conventional physiotherapy group. Conclusion: According to the results of the present study, both Craniosacral Therapy with Myofascial Release and conventional physiotherapy were similarly effective. In contrast, subjects with nonspecific neck pain responded better to Craniosacral Therapy with Myofascial release than conventional physiotherapy in terms of pain relief and functional improvement.

Keywords: Non-specific Neck Pain, Craniosacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Conventional Physiotherapy, Neck Disability Index.
