Abstract
Background: Neck pain is primary problem now a days with its annual prevalence greater than 30%. It is the fourth leading cause of disability. Approximately two-thirds of people in developed countries experience neck pain at some point in their life spans.
Objectives: The objective of this study was to determine and to compare the improvement in cervical range of motion after applying low amplitude high velocity thrust manipulation and grade III Maitland mobilization.
Materials and methods: This Randomized controlled trial conducted, after approval from the ethical committee of King Edward Medical University from December 2017 to May 2018 .The data was collected from patients who were presented to physiotherapy department of mayo hospital, Lahore. Total 40 subjects were randomly (computer generated table) assigned to two Groups i.e AandBwitheachgroupcontaining20 subjects. The treatment was given in 2 weeks and total 6 sessions were given. Assessment of patients was done at 0 (for baseline Baseline)day, after one week and at the end of the 2nd week. Along with this Inclinometer evaluation of cervical ROM was measured at every assessment.
Results: An important finding in the present study was the enhancing effect of BCI against neuro degeneration. It shows that these rats achieve to learn the task. It suggests that the BCI activated the neurons in the hippocampus and makes it sufficient for normal acquisition.
Conclusion: The study concluded that there was significant improvement in Cervical Range of motion in our both groups but the Thrust falling superior to Maitland mobilization in improving Cervical Range of motion.

Key words: Cervical Range of Motion, Postural Neck Pain, Maitland Mobilization, Thrust Mobilization
