Background and purpose: Evaluate the efficacy of integrated neuromuscular ischemic technique in the treatment of upper trapezius trigger points.

Subject: 20 students were selected for the study.

Methods: The 20 selected subjects with trapezius trigger points were randomly selected. All participants who fulfilled inclusion criteria were selected from Isra Institute of Rehabilitation Sciences. Informed consent was taken from students. In both groups, trigger points were identified by the star palpation method, assessment performa was filled up by the therapist and neck range of motion assessed by inclinometer and neck pain was assessed by numeric pain scale as base line measurement on the first day (pre-test scores) before starting the treatment.

Results: INIT patients, results showed INIT patients mean NPR was 4.4 ± 1.1 and after treatment it was 1.4 ± 0.76 and differences were statistically significant with p-value less than 0.05.

Conclusion: The present study was done to find out the effectiveness of INIT in the treatment of upper trapezius trigger points. This study endorses that trigger points in trapezius can cause neck pain with restriction in cervical range of motion. INIT were found to be effective in reducing pain and improving cervical range of motion.
