Abstract

Background: The study was designed to inspect the effectiveness of Positional Release Therapy (PRT) and Deep

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of Positional Release and Deep Transverse Frictional
Massage for Quadratus Lumborum.
Materials and Methods: Sixty subjects with Trigger Points in quadratus lumborum muscle were divided randomly
into two equal groups. Group “PRT” received Positional Release Therapy five times/week while Group “DTFM”
received Deep Transverse Frictional Massage five times/week for two weeks. Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS),
Universal Goniometer were used to evaluate subjects at two intervals (Pre-Treatment and Post-Treatment).The
entire process was performed from November 2022 to March 2023.
Result: The results of the study revealed that both the interventions were effective but in terms of superiority PRT
