Abstract
Background: Certain type of upper quarter pain and dysfunctions are thought to be associated with neural tissue disorders. The term cervico brachial pain syndrome (CBPS)has been coined to describe this upper quarter pain in which neural tissue sensitivity to mechanical stimuli is a primary feature. However, it is unaccompanied by neurological deficits like altered deep tendon reflexes, paresthesia, motor weakness. It has been suggested that enhanced mechanosensitivity of upper limb peripheral nerve trunks may contribute to pathology of CBPS
Purpose: To investigate the effects of Cervical Lateral Glide technique over neural mobilization for median nerve in subjects with Cervico brachial pain syndrome.
Materials and Methods: 20 subjects were included according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. Random sampling was done and all the subjects were divided into 2 groups. Group A was given cervical lateral glide and Group B was given neural tissue mobilization for median nerve for 14 days. The subjects were assessed for their pain and disability at day 0, 7 and 14 with pressure algometer, VAS and DASH as the outcome measures.
Result: Within group data from the subjects was analyzed by Friedman’s test and Mann Whitney U test was used to analyze between group data. Within group data shows significant result for both cervical lateral glide as well as neural tissue mobilization (p. <0.05) whereas between group data shows insignificant result (p >0.05)
Conclusion: The finding of this study suggests that neural tissue mobilization for median nerve as a treatment technique is much more effective than cervical lateral glide in cervicobrachial pain syndrome.

Key words: Cervico-brachial pain syndrome, cervical lateral glide, neural tissue mobilization, median nerve
