A paretic arm can change scapular orientation, as scapular stabilizers are often impaired by muscle weakness. MATERIAL AND MATHOD A correlation study was conducted at new civil hospital where scapular position and scapular mobility were assessed in 72 subjects both males and females. Motor Assessment scale was used to measure Upper Limb Mobility and lennie’s test and protractor method were used for scapular position assessment. RESULT There were significant changes in vertical distance from T8, the superior angle, root of spine and inferior angle from spinal midline on affected dominant side as well as non-dominant side. Significant correlation of MAS with inferior angle and vertical measurement found. Correction of superior angle and root of spine of scapula with MAS were nonsignificant.
