Abstract

To find out the effectiveness of soft tissue release of paracervical muscles on the cantho-limbal distance among young adults. Methods: A quasi-experimental study was carried out at Shalamar School of allied health sciences. A sample of 32 of reduced lateral cantho-limbal distance and neck pain was taken. A purposive sampling technique was used. Pre-test Cantho-limbal distance was measured by ABN tape in mm then technique of ischemic compression followed by stretching was applied and post-test cantho-limbal distance was a measure. Results: Results show that the cantho-limbal distance before treatment was 7.38±0.98mm and after treatment, it increases to 10.06±0.88mm. The difference between the effect of pre and post-treatment on cantho-limbal distance was statistically significant (p-value <0.001). Conclusion: This study concluded that paracervical muscles and muscles of eyes have some neuronal and myofascial attachment so that soft tissue release of paracervical muscles has a significant and beneficial effect on reduced lateral cantholimbal distance.
