Summary

A Randomized clinical trial will be conducted at Actilife physiotherapy Rehabilitation center, Horizon Hospital Lahore through a convenient sampling technique on patients who will be allocated using simple random sampling through sealed opaque enveloped into Group A and Group B. Group A will be treated with the self-mobilization technique of thoracic spine and Group B will be treated with thoracic stretching exercises at a frequency of 2 sets with 6 repetitions and thrice a week. Outcome measures will be NPRS, Goniometer, and Oswestry disability index for thoracic spine after 6 weeks. Data will be analyzed during SPSS software version 21.

Description

Chronic thoracic pain is pain that originates from the cervicothoracic junction and extends to the lower thoracic vertebrae. It is caused by strain in the thoracic spine area, sustained postures of the neck and thoracic region, sitting on the computer for a long time in slouched position, or overuse of the thoracic spine. This study aims to see the effects of the self-mobilization technique of the thoracic spine on pain, range of motion, and function in patients with chronic thoracic spine pain. A Randomized clinical trial will be conducted at Actilife physiotherapy Rehabilitation center, Horizon Hospital Lahore through a convenient sampling technique on patients who will be allocated using simple random sampling through sealed opaque enveloped into Group A and Group B. Group A will be treated with the self-mobilization technique of thoracic spine and Group B will be treated with thoracic stretching exercises at a frequency of 2 sets with 6 repetitions and thrice a week. Outcome measures will be NPRS, Goniometer, and Oswestry disability index for thoracic spine after 6 weeks. Data will be analyzed during SPSS software version 21. After assessing normality of data by Shapiro-wilk test, it will be decided either parametric or non-parametric test will be used within a group or between two groups.
