Description

Background: Mechanical sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SIJD) defined as pain and stiffness along with restricted range of motion around the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) which is further transmitted to groin, thigh and sometimes lower limb. Aim: The aim of the study to compare the effectiveness of muscle energy technique (MET) and Kinesiotaping (KT) in addition to conventional physiotherapy (CP) in participants with mechanical sacroiliac joint dysfunction Methods: Total 30 individuals with mechanical SIJD (7 male and 23 female, BMI 25.2±2.6 Kg/meter2) with age group between 30 to 50 years were recruited in the present study. METCp group (Muscle energy technique with conventional physiotherapy) received 20 participants and KTCp group (Kinesiotaping with conventional physiotherapy) received 10 participants. Follow-up measurements were taken on baseline, after 2 weeks and after 4th weeks of intervention. PPT, HHD AND MODI these three variables were used as outcome measures. Results: Shapiro-wilk test was used for normality test as number of total participants less than 50. Mann-Whitney U test was used to compare the outcome measures between METCp group and KTCp group. Wilcoxon sign rank test and Friedman test were used within the groups. There was significant improvement in both the groups, but METCp group found to be more significant than KTCp group (P value<0.0001). There was higher effect size among all variables in METCp group rather than KTCp group. Conclusion: Muscle energy technique and Kinesiotaping in addition with conventional physiotherapy is more effective by improving pain threshold, strength and functional performance in patients with mechanical SIJD Key wards: Athletic tape; Low back pain; Manipulation; Pelvic girdle pain; Orthotic tape; Muscle energy technique
