Description

Radiculopathy is a clinical condition which involves one or more nerves resulting in impaired function. The site of injury in radiculopathy is at the level of the spinal nerve root. The result is pain known as radicular pain, weakness in limb, numbness, paresthesia and difficulty in controlling specific muscles. The objective of the study will be to see the effects of myofacsial release and nerve flossing technique on pain and disability in patients with lumbar radiculopathy.

Detailed Description
This study will be randomized controlled trail. Participants having age in between 20-45 with low back pain radiating to the lower leg from last 2 months will be included in the study while the participants with lumbar spinal fracture, lumbar spinal tumor, peripheral vascular disease and systemic disease will be excluded from the study. Total 36 number of participants will be included in the study by non probability convenient sampling that will be randomly allocated into two groups by lottery method. Group A will receive nerve flossing technique and myofascial release along with conventional treatment while group B will receive nerve flossing technique along with conventional treatment. Nerve flossing technique will be given to patients 3 times per week for 15 minutes per session. Myofascial release technique will be given to the patients 3 times a week for 10 minutes with a total 4 weeks of treatment plan. All the participants will undergo a pre and post treatment test via numeric pain rating scale which will be used for rating pain, SLR, oswestry disability index which will be used for rating the level of disability. The importance of the study is to investigate the effects of these techniques in a controlled research setting will help determine their potential role in personalized treatment plans for patients with lumbar radiculopathy. The data will be analyzed via SPSS version 23.
