The aim of the study was to compare the effectiveness of Muscle Energy technique (MET) over Mulligan’s Mobilization with movement (MWM) on pain and functional disability in patients with Anterior Innominate Iliosacral Dysfunction, 30 patients with Anterior Innominate Iliosacral Dysfunction were included in the study and divided in to two groups. Both groups were treated with ultrasound therapy. In addition, Group A was treated with MET and Group B was treated with MWM. Pre and post intervention Pain (Visual Analogue Scale) and Functional disability (Modified Oswestry Disability Index) measures were noted at 0th and 6th session. At the post intervention, the inter group comparison showed statistically significant difference for both pain (p=0.013) and functional disability (p=0.002). The intra group comparison showed statistically significant difference (p<0.05) in both groups. This study concluded that both MET and MWM were effective in reducing pain and improving functional ability. While MET was found to be more effective than MWM in anterior innominate iliosacral dysfunction.
