Background: Active-passive motion therapy and deep breathing techniques are non-pharmacological methods of pain management. This method can reduce pain intensity and without indication. This happens because it can control pain by minimizing sympathetic activity in the autonomic nervous system. Relaxation involves muscles and does not require exercise. Aims: To compare the active-passive motion therapy and which deep breath relaxation is more effective toward pain intensity of patients with post-section Caesarea surgery. Method: The research design was used quasi-experimental. The number of samples was 32 people. The sample of this study was undertaken by Accidental Sampling. this research was conducted at the Santo Vincentius Singkawang Hospital. Data analysis was using an independent paired t-test. Result: From the results of statistical calculations, the data obtained p = 0.041 (p = <0.05), thus H0 is rejected and H1 is accepted, which means that the active-passive motion therapy is more effective in reducing pain intensity in patients with Post-sectio Caesarea surgery. Conclusion: The results of this study revealed that the active-passive motion therapy was very effective in reducing the intensity of post-operative pain Caesarea. This study recommended that the active-passive motion therapy can be used to reduce pain intensity in patients with sectio Caesarea surgery.
