Muzahid K Sheikh | Dr. Smita B Kanase
Abstract: Background Shoulder Joint is the most mobile joint in the human body. It undergoes shoulder pathology because less stability is provided by the adjacent structures. The most common structure affected in frozen shoulder is the inferior joint capsule because the inferior capsule is thin and deficient for the passage of long head of biceps. Method Experimental study was conducted at Krishna College of Physiotherapy, Karad.30 participants with age group of 40- 70 years both genders were selected according to the inclusion criteria. Group A (15) participants treated with MET and specific inferior capsular stretch. group B (15) were treated with MET. Results statistical analysis was done using paired and unpaired-t test. The outcome was measured in terms of VAS, ROM, SPADI. The statistical analysis for both the groups was done by Paired t test within group and unpaired t test between groups. The statistical analysis showed extreme significance after the treatment for consecutive 4weeks with 5 sessions per week. Conclusion Thus, from the above conducted study it concludes that effect of muscle energy technique and specific inferior capsular stretching had significant improvement clinically and statistically on SPADl score, VAS and ROM thus facilitating functional outcomes.
