Abstract: MTSS is frequently seen, especially in running and jumping athletes and in military personal, currently it is thought that MTSS is a bony over load injury, i.e., the tibia bone bends during weight bearing activities causing strain in the tibia. This strain normally causes micro damage in the bone, which leads to bone adaptation processes to strengthen the bone to resist tibia bending. It has been estimated that this condition has accounted for 4% to 35% of overuse leg injuries in the athletic and military populations. Research has shown that MTSS in runners and military personal responsible for 13.2% to 17.3% of all running injuries and approximately 22% of injuries in aerobic dancer. Total of 60 subjects with age between 25 to 35 years, were assigned into two groups using convenience sampling method according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. In the case of any drop out during the study, a subject with same inclusion criteria was selected.
