Impact of Active Release Technique and Core Strengthening on Pain, Muscle Stiffness, Muscle Hardness and Quality of Life on Non- Specific Low Back Pain: An Experimental Study
Keywords:Nonspecific lowback pain, ART (Active Release Technique), Myofascial Trigger Points, Quality of life
Background:- Bad posture while working puts excessive stress and strain on low back. These in
turn contribute significantly to the development of the spasm–pain–spasm process, which ultimately
results in the development of myofascial trigger points(MTrPs) in the muscle fibers. This is due to the
reduced blood supply that leads to a decrease in the supply of oxygen and also minerals and vitamins
to the muscle Active release technique(ART), a non-invasive soft tissue restoration procedure includes
reducing the scar tissue that induces discomfort, stiffness, muscle weakness and unusual pain like
mechanical dysfunction of the myofascial and soft tissue.
Methodology:- This experimental study will be conducted with population of 40 aging from 18 to 25
dividing them equally into two group with simple random sampling. The participants of one group will be
given active release technique with hot fomentation while the other group will receive hot fomentation. Core
strengthening exercises will be given to both the groups.
Conclusion:- This study intends to find the effectiveness of active release technique in reduction of pain,
muscle stiffness and muscle hardness in patients with non-specific low back pain and also the resultant
improvement in their quality of life
