Comparison between Immediate Effect of Cryotherapy and Stretching vs MFR and Stretching for Biceps Brachii Muscle in Exercise Induced Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)

Rutwij Gajageshwar, Virendra Meshram

Abstract: Aim - To compare the effect of MFR and stretching vs. cryotherapy and stretching in exercise induced DOMS. Objective – 1.To study the immediate effect of MFR and stretching in exercise induced DOMS for biceps brachii by NPRS and ROM. 2.To study the immediate effect of cryotherapy and stretching in exercise induced DOMS for biceps brachii by NPRS and ROM. 3.To compare the effects of MFR and stretching and effect of cryotherapy and stretching in exercise induced DOMS for biceps brachii by NPRS and ROM. Procedure - Experimental study was done on 60 normal healthy individuals, out of which 30 subjects were in group A I.e. of cryotherapy with stretching and group B i.e. MFR with stretching. Pre and post assessment of group A and group B was done on NPRS by using Wilcoxon-matched paired signed rank test and paired t-test was used for flexion range of motion and extension range of motion. Conclusion - After comparing both the groups i.e. group A and B, the effect of cryotherapy and stretching as well as MFR and stretching is seen significant. But there is a better increment of effect of cryotherapy and stretching then MFR and stretching in exercise induced DOMS.
