Brief Summary

The objective of this study is to assess the impacts of utilitarian exercise versus high frequency anscutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation on pain and sleep quality in students with primary dysmenorrhea.

Detailed Description

A Randomized Control Trial study will be directed at Riphah International University Faisalabad after synopsis approval. The Purposive examining method will be utilized to enlist the patients. Patients will be enrolled according to the pre-characterized criteria. Sample size for this examination is 40 females (18 yrs - 30 yrs) as per determination measures. The patients of one group will recieve exercise therapy and patients of other group will recieve high frequency Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. The patient's result will be assessed following a month of treatment . Informed consent will be taken from each patient. Data entry and analysis will be done with Statistical Package of Social Sciences version 20.

Description: Among Functional Exercises, cobra position is most effective in reducing pelvic pain while others are cat and fish position.Kegel exercises along with other strengthening activities for pelvic floor muscles have been accounted for in writing to favorably affect primary dysmenorrheal.

Arm Group Label: Functional Exercise

Intervention Type: Other

Intervention Name: High Frequency Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation

Description: Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, best treat primary dysmenorrhea. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation is proposed as an incredible spasm decrease, lessening torment, decline of analgesics and improving personal satisfaction in primary dysmenorrhea patients.

Arm Group Label: High Frequency Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation
