Keywords:Myofascial Release Technique, Eccentric exercise, MMT(Manual muscle testing), ROM(Range of motion), PREE (Progressive resistance exercise), Triceps tendinopathy
Background: Quadriceps Tendinopathy is commonly seen in Athletes,basketball players, weight lifters and even in Badminton players also. Many studies are available in the literature on Tendinopathies, very few are there on quadricepstendinopathy. No studies are there on Tendon release therapy with and without Eccentric exercise. So, purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of Myofascial Release Technique in combination with Eccentric Exercise and without Eccentric exercise in quadricepstendinopathy. Methods: It is an experimental study which was conducted on thirty athletes who were randomly assigned into Myofascial Release Technique (TRT)Group-A and Tendon Release therapy with Eccentric exercise(TRTE) Group-B. Group A received only TRT and Group B received Tendon Release Therapy with eccentric exercise. TRT for 5min daily one session, Eccentric Exercise for 10 repetitions daily one session. Total duration of study is for 12 weeks.Both groups ROM, MMT and PREE values are recorded on first day of treatment and after 12 weeks.Values were analyzed statistically, the pre-post values of both the groups were analyzed by using students‘t’ test and post-post values were analyzed using ANOVA. Results: Both groups showed decrease in pain and improvement in strength, ROM and function, whereas Myofascial Release Technique with Eccentric exercise group-B showed significant decrease in pain, improved muscle strength, ROM and overall function of Knee with a P value of P<0.0001. Conclusion: The results suggest that Myofascial Release Technique with eccentric exercise gave superior result in decreasing in pain, improving ROM, Strength and overall performance of elbow.
