The objective of this study is to determine the Efficacy of Janda’s Approach Versus Bruegger’s Exercise in Pelvic Cross Syndrome and the quality of its impact in Life. Pelvic Cross Syndrome is characterized by tightness of thoracolumbar extensor on the dorsal side crosses with tightness of the Illiopsoas and Rectus femories. Weakness of the deep abdominal muscle ventrally crossed with weakness of the Gluteus maximus and Medius. This was an experimental study design with pre-post type conducted in outpatient physiotherapy department of ACS Medical college and hospital and took nearly 3 months to complete the study (January 2018-April 2018). 30 samples were selected from 45 volunteers based on the inclusion criteria. Group A received the Janda’s approach, Group B received the Bruegger’s exercise. Pre and post test outcome measures were taken with SF-12 scale,Visual analog scale, Goniometer.Post interventionally, both the groups showed decrease in pain and increase range of motion. However on comparing the results, Group A showed higher mean value and was more effective than Group B. The study concluded that the Group A Janda’s approach is an effective approach in reducing the pain and improved the range of motion in Pelvic Cross Syndrome.
