Effect of Total Motion Release on Acute Neck Pain: A Pilot Study
To evaluate the effectiveness of total motion release in acute neck pain.
A pre-test and post-test pilot study
Visual analog scale (VAS), Neck disability index (NDI) and Range of motion.
Materials & Method
consent form, data collection sheet and goniometer were used. 30 Subjects in age group 18–45 years clinically diagnosed with Acute neck pain received hot moist pack followed by total motion release approach once daily for a total of 7 sessions for 25 minute per session.
total motion release approach along with hot moist heat for seven days
30 participants completed the 7 day treatment. There was significant statistical reduction of neck pain (p=.000) on comparison between pre and post values of Visual Analog Scale (VAS), and a significant statistical reduction of neck disability (p=.000) on comparison between pre and post values of Neck Disability Index (NDI). There was also significant increase in cervical range of motion on comparison between pre and post values of range of motion.
Total Motion Release was effective in reducing pain and disability and increasing the cervical range of motion in cases of acute neck pain.
