ABSTRACT

Background and objective • This study shows a greater prevalence of MTrPs during the exam period. Very less studies to the date has investigated the relationship between trigger points, muscle strength and stress in UG physiotherapy students. In Linton (2000) review of 11 studies discussing stress and anxiety, a significant relation was found between these parameters and neck or back pain. This is consistent with the current study’s results, in which the NRS of neck pain was significantly higher during the exam period. Aim: To find the relationship between trigger point and muscle strength in dominant upper extremity in exam appearing undergraduate physiotherapy students. To find the relationship between trigger points and stress in exam appearing undergraduate physiotherapy students. Material and Mehod: In this correlation study 40 undergraduate physiotherapy students were taken and evaluated for trigger point in the upper trapezius muscle. The strength of each individual was taken with the help of handheld dynamometer and the sensitivity was checked using algometer. Result: The result showed a decrease strength with the presence of trigger point in the dominant upper extremity where else the correlation with stress and trigger was found to be insignificant. Conclusion: • As per our study the correlation between trigger point and muscle strength was found to be decreased, which shows presences of trigger point decreases the strength of muscle. • Where else the correlation between perceived stress scale and trigger was found to be insignificant.

Keywords: Trigger Point and Muscle Strength.
