Abstract

Background: This study was designed to determine and compare the effect of low level laser therapy and strong surge faradic current on trapezius spasm. Material And Methods: Group A consisted of 15 subjects who received Low Level Laser Therapy and Group B consisted of 15 subjects who received Strong Surge Faradic current. On the 1st and 5th day Numerical pain rating scale (NPRS) was taken to measure pain intensity, Hubbard’s “Tenderness grading scale” was used for assessment of soft tissue tenderness and Cervical side flexion and rotation range of motion was measured using universal goniometer. Result: The t-value for NPRS, tenderness, cervical side flexion and rotation were 12.52, 11.05, -7.28 and -8.76 respectively. So, there was significant difference in all the outcome measures between Group A and Group B at level of significance p=0.00. Conclusion: The results of this study demonstrated that LLLT and SSF current both the interventions are effective for treatment of trapezius spasm. But SSF current is more effective than LLLT in improving cervical rotation range of motion. [Mehta K sain A Natl J Integr Res Med, 2020; 11(3):33-38]
