Objective: To investigate the immediate effect of mulligan mobilization to correct kyphotic deformity in cervical spondylosis patients. Design: A Simple Randomized Control Study. Setting: MGM Fitness and Rehabilitation Centre, Aurangabad, Maharashtra. Subjects: Sixty patients with Cervical spondylosis Patients and ROM(range of motion),Crani-vertebral angle(CVA) measured less than or equal to 50 degree,CBVA angle measured to -1.7 degree and Neck Disability Index(NDI), were Randomly assigned to an Experimental group and a Control group. Intervention: The Experimental Group (n=30) received kyphotic deformity corrective mulligan mobilization where-as the Control Group (n=30) received Moist Pack and Neck Isometric strengthening exercise program. Main outcome Measures: Cervical ROM, Cranio-vertebral angle, Chin Brow vertical angle, Neck Disability Index were measured for all patients (Before treatment and after treatment). Results: There was a significant difference between groups subjected to baseline value of outcome measures. (p= < 0.0001). Conclusion: Kyphotic deformity Correction using a Mulligan Mobilization to decrease pain, CVA, CBVA, NDI Score was effective in cases of cervical spondylosis patients.
