A topical anesthetic gel lidocaine has been widely used as a local anesthetic to reduce the pain and discomfort. It provides local analgesia by blocking the initiation and transmission of impulses. Lidocaine topical anesthetic gel allows the use of high concentrations of the anesthetic bases without concern about local irritation, uneven absorption or systemic toxicity (Argoff, 2000 ). So, the aim of this study is to compare between the effect of lidocaine phonophoresis and pulsed ultrasound in myofascial pain syndrome in swimmers children.
Fourty five children (athletic swimmers) participated in this study, and were classified into three groups ; First control group A : this group consisted of fifteen children were receiving traditional physical therapy program. Second study group B: this group consisted of fifteen children were receiving pulsed ultrasound in addition to traditional physical therapy program as the same as in group A. Third study group C: this group consisted of fifteen children were receiving lidocaine phonophoresis in addition to traditional physical therapy program as the same as in group A. Treatment program in the three groups applied three times a week for three successive months. The study was done in the outpatient clinic of Ismailiy Sporting Club, Ismailia, Egypt.
