A Study to Compare the Effectiveness of Maitland Mobilization Versus Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation with Wax Therapy in Shoulder Adhesive Capsulitis
Abstract: Adhesive capsulitis is a shoulder condition defined as an insidious onset of pain and a gradual loss of both passive and active range of motion (ROM) in the affected shoulder. The aim of the study to compare the effect between two treatments named, Maitland Technique ans PNF Technique The capsular pattern in the shoulder is characterized by limitation of passive range. Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is a stretching technique utilized to improve muscle elasticity and has been shown to have a positive effect on active and passive range of motions Within group comparison of pre-test and post-test scores in both groups demonstrated reduction in VAS scores [Graph 1] with P = 0<0.05, Goniometry EXT [Graph 2] with P = 0 > 0.05, Goniometry ABD [Graph 3] with P = 0 < 0.05 and SPADI scores [Graph 4] with P = 0.18 > 0.05. The intra-group analysis showed that both the treatments are effective in terms of improvementin the values of measures namely GONIOMETRY (ABD & EXT) and in terms of reduction in the values of measures, namely VAS & SPADI. However, the inter-group analysis showed that Treatment A is effective than Treatment B in terms of improvement in the values of measures namely GONIOMETRY (ABD & EXT) and in terms of reduction in the value of a measure namely VAS. Hence, we conclude that Treatment A is effective than Treatment B in terms of measures VAS, GONIOMETRY-ABD, and GONIOMETRY-EXT.
