ABSTRACT 

Background: Cervical spine pain is a common musculoskeletal problem affecting 70% of individuals within their lifetime which can significantly affect physical and social function. Myofascial pain syndrome is characterized by muscle pain caused by MTrPs. Myofascial therapy defined as “the facilitation of mechanical, neural, and psychophysiological adaptive potential as interfaced in the myofascial system. suboccipital release is also known as cranial base release. Muscle of the neck and upper back attach to the base of the occiput and often contains many  hyperactive trigger points.

Materials and Methods: The study was performed on 30 subjects, both male and female  between age 20 years to 45 years old. Subjects were randomly selected for collection of data. Assessment of physical parameters were noted such as, height, weight and BMI. Subjects were divided into 2 groups as follows:Group A (n=15) recieved Triplanar myofascial release technique and Group B (n=15) recieved suboccipital release technique. Pain assessment, NDI, PPA was done pre and post intervention.

Results: Among the 30 subjects, the mean age group the participants in group A 24.60±5.36, the means age group of particiapants in group B was 26.33±7.62. the results showed high significance in the group B.

Conclusion: Study shows decreased in the pain and disability in group B.

KEY WORDS: Myofascial Release, Trigger Points, Suboccipital Release.
