Abstract: Background: Trapezitis is musculoskeletal condition in which inflammation of trapezius muscle is commonly seen as a result of faulty posture, overuse stressful neck movement and ultimately leads to neck- shoulder pain. The effect on the musculoskeletal properties is due to surging of faradic current as it increases the blood circulation to the muscle and also enhances the contractile property of the muscle and also Strain and Counter- strain technique or positional release technique is a passive positional intervention aimed at relieving musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. Aim: To study effect in Pain, Functional Disability and ROM after Strain and Counter-Strain technique along with Surge Faradic Stimulation in trapezitis patients. Methodology: 44 Subjects were selected on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria. They were randomly allotted with 1:1 to either group A or B, both groups received intervention for 6 days/week. NPRS, NDI & Universal Goniometer were taken to measure Pain, Functional disability and Range of motion. Statistical analysis & Results: Statistical Analysis was done Using SPSS Software within Group with Surge Faradic Stimulation the Data for Pain, functional disability & Range of Motion shows Highly significant (P Value <0.0001) difference. In Subjects with SF+SCS Data showed Highly Significance (p value <0.0001) for pain, Functional Disability & Range of motion. Study showed that comparison Between Group was (P value <0.0001) also showed Highly Significant result in improving cervical ranges expect flexion and extension and also functional disability. Conclusion: The study concludes that Surge Faradic Stimulation and Add on effect of Strain and Counter strain Study is Helpful in reducing Pain & Range of Motion in within group but Cervical flexion and extension ROM with functional disability of Neck does not showed the significant result thus there is add on effect of Strain & Counter-but Technique on Trapezitis patient but there no effect in improving functional disability and flexion & extension ROM in between groups of trapezitis patients.
