About

No studies have investigated the effects of a Sciatic nerve mobilization in subjects with neck pain. This study aims to determine the immediate effects of a lower limbs neural mobilization on cervical range of motion and on the perception of pain in the most common trigger points located in the cervical musculature.

Full description

A convenience sample will be used to obtain subjects The subjects will be recruited through posted advertisements on social networks. The inclusion and exclusion criteria will be applied to the volunteers. The sample wil comprise university students and administrative workers with neck pain. The subjects will be screened by a screening questionnaire and all of them, they will be required to sign an inform consent before participating to the study. After signing it, they will be randomly divide into control group subject to a placebo technique and the intervention group subject to an active mobilization of the sciatic nerve. To assess changes in cervical articular range, will be used, a cervical goniometer (CROM) and for changes in pressure pain threshold of the trigger points will be used a mechanical algometer. Furthermore, to asses changes in pain perception will be used a visual numerical scale. The statistical analysis will be performed using the statistical program SPSS 25.0, comparing the results between both groups.

40 participants in 2 patient groups

Active neck mobilization
Active Comparator group
Description:
The subjects, who were randomly allocated to group active neurodynamic mobilization group, will receive the active sciatic nerve mobilization intervention. The subject will be instructed to do a a modification of the slump. The procedure will be performed 1 minute with each leg, two times, the subjects will rest one minute between each mobilization and between series.
Treatment:
Other: Active neck mobilization
Active Mobilization of the Sciatic nerve
Experimental group
Description:
The subjects, who were randomly allocated to group active neurodynamic mobilization group, will receive the active sciatic nerve mobilization intervention. The subject will be instructed to do a a modification of the slump. The procedure will be performed 1 minute with each leg, two times, the subjects will rest one minute between each mobilization and between series.
Treatment:
Other: Active Mobilization of the sciatic nerve
