Abstract

Background: Cervical radiculopathy (CR) caused by disc disease is a disabling condition characterizedby
radicular pain in one or both upper extremities, in combination with sensory, motor, and reflex changes in one
or several affected nerve-root distribution.. Cervical mobilization refers to low velocity, sustained or oscillatory
passive movements of varying amplitude applied at different range give by therapist to reduce pain and improve
joint mobility. Neuro-physiological effect of cervical mobilization helps in reduction of pain through gentle small
amplitude rhythmic oscillatory movement which stimulates the mechanoreceptors that inhibit the transmission
of nociceptive stimulus at the level of spinal cord or brain stem and thus pain get reduced. All this helps in the
normal functioning of the nervous tissue in the body.
Methods: The study was conducted at Department of Physiotherapy, Rajeev Gandhi College, Bhopal. 30
subjects meeting the inclusion criteria were recruited for the study. They were allocated randomly into two
equal groups, Group A and Group B respectively. Subjects in both the group received Surged Faradic Stimulation
& Manual Cervical Traction as a baseline treatment. In Group A, subjects received neural tissue mobilization in
addition while in Group B subjects received Cervical Mobilization in addition. Treatment was given for 6 day per
week for 4 week.
Conclusion: The results of this study show that neural tissue mobilization and cervical mobilization, in combination
with manual traction and pulsed faradic stimulation, are equally beneficial in reducing pain, disability, and ROM.
