Comparison of Mulligan Mobilization with Movement and End-Range Mobilization Following Maitland Techniques in Patients with Frozen Shoulder in Improving Range of Motion
Abstract: This Quasi experimental study was aimed to compare the outcomes of end range joint mobilizations (ER M) following Maitland technique with mobilization with movement (MWM) for treating frozen shoulder to increase range of motion and to find the most effective management technique for treating other patients with frozen shoulder patients.100 patients were taken in which comparison of two interventions on a single condition i. e. frozen shoulder, was done, over the period of two months for improving ROM. Paired Sample t-test performed. All the subjects was interviewed and evaluated for inclusion and they signed the consent form then they was asked to pick up a card for entitlement randomly in each of two groups i. e. either group A or B and was included in the study. The results showed strong statistical significant correlation between range of movement in shoulder extension before and after two months of treatment. In both experimental groups, shoulder flexion and abduction range of movements increased but improvement was not significant statistically i. e. respectively p-value=0.348 and p-value=0.367. Mean value for shoulder internal rotation were same in both experimental comparative groups. Regarding pain measurements, VAS Mean scores were found statistically insignificant when analyzed before and after intervention. This supported their usefulness in improving quality of life due to frozen shoulder. This may contribute in improved public health in country where cost is a critical factor having long term physiotherapy treatment. There found no statistically significant difference in both approaches in improving range of motion and pain.
