About

Pregnancy is the main occasion of every woman's life in which numerous episodes of physiological and anatomical adjustments takes place within woman's body to become a mother. Anatomical changes often leads to poor biomechanics and may cause mechanical dysfunction of spine especially lower back.. Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) goes through most of mobility during the period of pregnancy due to hormone release causes ligamentous laxity that can cause SIJD.

Full description

Fifty two patients will be randomly divided into two groups i.e. Group-A (n=26) and B (n=26) respectively through simple random sampling, sealed envelope method. Informed consent will be taken from the participant prior to intervention. Baseline assessment will be carried out before the first session of all the recruited participants on four outcome measures using, Patrick's FABER test for provocation of pain, NPRS for intensity of pain, RMDQ for physical disability and PALM Pelvic Inclinometer for pelvic asymmetry respectively. Skin reaction test will be conducted before randomization after the baseline assessment for all participants. A small patch of kinesio tape will be applied to the hip region and the participants will be asked to keep it for 24 hours. If any of the participants will develop allergic reaction, it will be removed immediately and participants with positive results will be excluded from the study. After this test, the allergy-free patients will be randomized into 2 groups for treatment. Participants of Group-A will be applied KT with conventional physiotherapy while Group-B participants will perform MET with conventional physiotherapy. Whereas, both the groups will be given 12 sessions of their respective protocol, comprising 20 minutes, 3 times/week for the duration of 4 weeks. After the end of the intervention, subjects will be reassessed after the last session and data will be collected on the same outcome measures for further evaluation
