Motor control was defined as motor relearning program with emphasis on coordination and holding capabilities of specific neck flexor, extensor, and shoulder girdle muscles. MET is a method of treatment that involves the voluntary contraction of a Patients muscle in a precisely controlled direction, against a counterforce provided by the therapist.
Methodology: - In the study 50 chronic neck pain patients will be enrolled. And will be divided into 25 in each group. One group will receive Muscle Energy Technique and the other group will receive Motor Control Exercise as well as conventional therapy for 4 weeks. Pain, ROM and strength will be evaluated using the standard technique.
Discussion: - The goal of this Interventional study is to examine the impact of MET versus MCE with conventional therapy on patients with chronic neck pain. This research will help in identifying rapid and long term effects of MET versus MCE with conventional therapy on patients with chronic neck pain. The clinical trial registry-India(CTRI) registration number for this trial is CTRI/2021/05/033497.
