Abstract
Objective: To investigate the effect of kinesio taping versus cervical traction posture pump on mechanical neck dysfunction.
Design: A randomized controlled trial.
Setting: Physical therapy outpatient clinic.
Subjects: Fifty four patients with mechanical neck dysfunction participated in this study. Interventions: Participants were assigned randomly into three groups; group (A) received Kinesio taping every 4 days for 8 sessions with exercises program, group (B) received cervical traction posture pump with exercises program 3 days/week for 12 sessions, and control group (C) received exercises program only inform of stretching, postural and isometric exercises for neck and shoulder joint 3 days/week for 12 sessions.
Main measures: Absolute rotatory angle, pain intensity and neck function disability were measured pre and post treatment by digital radiography, visual analogue scale and neck disability index, respectively.
Results: There was a significant increase in absolute rotatory angle, significant decrease in visual analogue scale and neck disability index for experimental groups (A) and (B).The control group (C) had a significant decrease in visual analogue scale and neck disability index with least effect, but with no effect on Absolute rotatory angle.
Conclusion: The combined therapy of kinesio taping or cervical traction posture pump with exercise program are effective in improving the absolute rotatory angle, pain intensity and function neck disability in mechanical neck dysfunction more than exercise alone.

Key words: Kinesio taping, cervical traction posture pump, mechanical neck dysfunction.
