A Study on Effectiveness of Corrective Exercise Over Conventional Exercises in Individuals Suffering from Trapezitis
Keywords:Trapezitis, Corrective Exercises, Conventional exercises, Static strengthening, Visual Analog Scale, Neck Disability Index
Background: Neck pain prevalence varies widely on different studies. Poor ergonomic work habit such
as prolonged constrained work position with persistent neck or spine flexion may imply a risk factor.
Maintaining poor posture for long periods of time can result in chronic muscular fatigue, discomfort or
pain, leading to pathological effects like Trapezitis and permanent disability. Exercises has proved to be
very important for neck pain. Neck muscle exercises if given thus will prove to be beneficial in improving
stability of the neck muscle.
Objectives: To compare the effectiveness of corrective exercise over conventional exercises in individuals
suffering from Trapezitis.
Methods: - It is a comparative experimental study.This study includes (N=40) subjects with neck pain
within age group of 25-45 years. They were randomly assigned into 2 groups (Group A and B). Group A had
20 (N=20) subjects who are treated with Corrective exercises, Group B had 20 (N=20) who are treated with
Conventional exercises. The subjects were given intervention 5 days a week for 2 weeks.
Result: Paired sample t-test was used for within group analysis. Independent sample t-test was done to
analyse between group variables. No significant difference was found in NDI (p<0.001), VAS (p <0.001)
between Corrective and Conventional groups while within the groups all outcome measures shows significant
difference in bothbetween Corrective and Conventional groups(p=0.01).
Conclusion: -This study concluded that both the treatment techniques,between Corrective and Conventional
were effective in alleviating the pain in individuals suffering from Trapezitis.
