Both groups were given conventional treatment. Outcome measures used were VAS and NDI.
Result: Paired t test was used to compare within groups where p<0.05 and unpaired t test was used to compare between groups where p>0.05.
Conclusion: The study concluded that both MSRT and PRT were equally effective in reducing pain and improving NDI score.
