Abstract: Purpose: The study was conducted to identify and investigate the therapeutic effectiveness of the neural mobilization technique, given along with the McKenzie Approach (Directional Preference) for the treatment of Cervical Derangement Syndrome. This study has made the comparison, in order to discover the most effective treatment protocol to alleviate the symptoms of the condition. Objectives:To assess the effect on pain after introducing Neural Mobilization for Cervical Derangement Syndrome, to measure the severity of pain by using Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS), to identify the distribution of pain, to measure the functional disability by using Neck Disability Index (NDI), to explore the socio-demography of the participants, to investigate the effect on reducing discomfort and functional disability after introducing Neural Mobilization. Methodology:The study was an experimental design and conducted by using Randomized Control Trial (RCT). Results:The study has used statistical analysis by unrelated t test to compare the Experimental and Control Group and analysed by interpreting the probability level of significance of t-value. The results were found to be significant for t-value at probability level 0.05. Conclusion:The study concludes that the combination technique is significantly capable of producing beneficial effects on pain reduction, minimization of functional disability and cervical spinal mobility in patients with Cervical Derangement Syndrome.
