Abstract: Trapezius muscle is highly susceptible for over use and is the most designated postural muscle. The aim of study was to compare positional release therapy verses deep ischemic compression for trigger point on upper trapezius in computer users for 1 week. Total 60 subjects were taken for the study. Subjects were divided into two groups 30 subjects in each group. Participant were evaluated with pre and post interventions of NDI and VAS score. Treatment session was carried for 1-week with 3 days sessions on alternate days. Result: Both group A and B shown significant improvement in VAS score and NDI when comparison is made within group. Conclusion: Deep ischemic compression is better choice of treatment in improving the pain and functional disability for trigger points on upper trapezius for 1 week.
