The study employed a pre-test post-test experimental design. The final sample size was determined following a pilot study. Patients were recruited based on specific inclusion and exclusion criteria. Sequentially numbered, opaque, sealed envelopes were used to allocate patients randomly into either Group 1 or Group 2. Group 1 and 2 consists of 15 sample each. Over a period of 4 weeks, Group 1 received active Myofascial Unwinding and Myofascial Release (MFR) therapies, while Group 2 received conventional physiotherapy treatment only. Each participant underwent a total of 12 sessions, distributed evenly over the 4-week period (i.e., 3 sessions per week). Data collected during the study were analyzed using SPSS version 20.0. Normality analysis was conducted utilizing the Shapiro-Wilk test.
