Short Term Effectiveness of Maitland Mobilization Along with Neurodynamics Vs Maitland Mobilization in Subjects with Cervical Spondylosis with Radiculopathy- A Randomized Control Trial
Keywords:Maitland mobilization, Neural tissue mobilization, cervical spondylosis.
Objectives: To determine and compare the effectiveness of Maitland mobilization alone and Neural tissue and Maitland mobilization in cervical spondylosis with unilateral radiculopathy. Methodology: An experimental study was carried out at Physiotherapy Outpatient Department, Krishna Hospital, Karad. By convenience sampling 30 subjects with cervical spondylosis with unilateral radiculopathy were divided into two groups. Baseline treatment of intermittent cervical traction and interferential therapy was given to both groups. Group A received Neural Tissue mobilization and Maitland mobilization while group B received only Maitland mobilization. Result: The statistical analysis was done by Wilcoxon matched pairs test and Mann-Whitney test. The preinterventional mean pain scoring using VAS was 6.867 ± 1.642 in Group A and 6.533 ± 1.767 in Group B and post intervention score was 2 ± 1.195 in Group A and 3.33 ± 1.113 in Group B between group statistical analysis showed significant difference between group A versus group B (p= 0.0072). The pre-interventional mean score of NDI was 35.733 ± 6.59 in Group A and 34.8 ± 7.993 in Group B and post intervention score was 9.33 ± 2.795 in Group A and 11.33 ± 3.75 in Group B, between group statistical analysis showed no significant difference between group A versus group B (p= 0.1698). Conclusion: It can be concluded that combination of Neural tissue mobilization and Maitland mobilization is effective in reducing pain in cervical spondylosis with unilateral radiculopathy.
