Abstract: Background: The pathological changes in periarthritis shoulder occurs surrounding the intrinsic structure tightness. Sleeper?s stretch mainly acts on capsule. There are some studies which supports that Mobilizations is more effective in patients with Periarthritis shoulder. Some studies proven that Sleeper?s stretch is more effective in Periarthritis shoulder. As a result, present study is thought to be determine the effects of Sleeper?s stretch with Mulligan and Maitland mobilization on Perarthritis shoulder. Objectives: To study the effect of sleeper?s stretch with Mulligan mobilization and sleeper?s stretch with Maitland mobilization and conventional physiotherapy in subjects with PA shoulder. Methodology: A total of 30 subjects were recruited in the study who met inclusion criteria and informed consent was taken. Initially, baseline values of demographic details like age, VAS, SPADI, ROM was taken. Thirty subjects, were divided into three groups A, B and C with each of ten subjects allocated randomly. Subjects of Group A underwent sleeper?s stretch with mulligan mobilization. Subjects of Group B underwent sleeper?s stretch with Maitland mobilization. Subjects of Group C underwent wax therapy and conventional physiotherapy. All groups were taken treatment for 6 days in a week for 3 weeks. Sleeper?s stretch is given for 10 repetitions and each repetition is for 30 seconds per day. Total session is conducted for 45 minutes per day and subjects were assessed like VAS, SPADI, and ROM after 3 weeks of treatment. Results: The results were analyzed by comparing the pre and post - test values of shoulder abduction, internal rotation, and external rotation range of motion, VAS, SPADI by using statistical analysis. After 3 weeks of treatment abduction, internal rotation, external rotation of shoulder range of motion and SPADI shows high improvement and VAS shows low improvement. Conclusion: Concluded that Mulligan mobilization with sleeper?s stretch is more effective i. e., the mean values of ROM for Abduction, internal and external rotation of shoulder, VAS and SPADI has shown the significant improvement in Group - A.
