Effect of Myofascial Release and Deep Transverse Friction Massage as an Adjunct to Conventional Physiotherapy in Case Unilateral Upper Trapezitis -Comparative Study

Pooja Mane, Amrutkuvar Pawar, Trupti Warude

Background Trapezitis is defined as an inflammation of trapezius muscle. The upper trapezius muscle designed as postural muscle and its highly susceptible to overuse. The pain is present during rest and aggravated during activity, it may be referred to other areas from the site of primary inflammation. Passive range of motion may be painful & restricted due to pain and protective spasm in antagonist muscle group. The present study was conducted to find out effect Myofascial release and deep transverse friction massage in Trapezitis subjects. Method An Experimental study was conducted at Krishna College of Physiotherapy, Karad. 30 subjects with age group between 20-40 years were taken. A total of 30 subjects were selected and were equally divided in to two groups. Both the Groups received hot moist pack while Group A received Myofascial release technique, and Group B received deep transverse friction massage Results Analysis using pairst test and wilcoxon matched pairs test found statistically significant improvement (p=0.0001) in pain and functional disability within the groups. Comparative Analysis using Unpaired T test found no statistically significant difference in ROM both the techniques. Conclusion Present study concluded that both the techniques shown to have equal effect on improving pain and range of motion. In addition results supported that Myofascial release therapy with conventional therapy was more effective in improving pain, ROM in unilateral upper Trapezitis subjects. Thus, the alternative hypothesis is proved.
