Effect of Maitland Spinal Mobilization Therapy Versus Conventional Therapy in Lumbar Spondylosis with Radiculopathy
Design : Randomized controlled trial.
Material : Inch tape, pen , goniometer, SWD , lumbar traction unit , Hot packs.
Method: A RCT was done and patients with lumbar spondylosis were allocated in two group. Gr. I received Maitland's mobilization in P-A , rotational and transverse mobilization with hot packs and core stabilization. Gr. 2 received lumbar traction, Shortwave diathermy and core stabilization. Each group had 20 patients and they were evaluated on day one pre treatment and day 30 post treatment. Outcome measures used for assessment were pain on VAS scale, spinal ROM by Schober's test SLR and Oswestry Disability Scale for functional evaluation.
Results: Spinal mobilization and conventional therapy both showed improvement in pain and spinal ROM but spinal mobilization however mobilization therapy showed significant improvement than conventional group (t value = 2.149, p < 0.05). SLR & ODI showed improvement within group but not between the two groups.
Conclusion : Spinal mobilization is better than routine conventional therapy .
