Authors: Marika Mattos, Dr. Meenakshi Pandit

Abstract

Introduction: Myofascial pain is defined as pain which comes from MTrPs in muscle that are considered as hyperirritable spot located within a taut band of skeletal muscle. Matrix Rhythm Therapy (MaRhyThe®) works on normalizing the oscillating frequency of the cells (8-12Hz) and improving supply of oxygenated blood and nutrition through ECM.

Objective: 1.To find out the effect of MaRhyThe

Method: Participants were randomly selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria they were then treated with matrix rhythm therapy for 20 mins on the active trigger point. Participants were assessed pre and post treatment on the basis of VAS and cervical ROM.

Result: Significant improvement was seen in the immediate post VAS and cervical lateral flexion.

Conclusion: This study concludes that Matrix Rhythm Therapy shows significant improvement in pre VAS and cervical ROM and immediate Post VAS and cervical ROM.
