Abstract: Background: Frozen Shoulder is a medical condition in which the shoulder joint has become rigid and movement has been restricted. The prevalence ranges from 3% to 5%, with peak intensity occurring between the ages of 35 and 65. Pectoral muscles are more prone for tightness, which may alter the biomechanics of the shoulder. Research has cited the importance Muscle Energy Technique (MET) in the treatment of Frozen Shoulder. Therefore, the need of this study was to compare the effectiveness of Pectoral muscles Muscle energy technique in patients with FS. Aim: To study the effect of Muscle energy technique in addition to conventional therapy on Pain, Pectoral Muscles Tightness, Shoulder Flexibility and Functional Disability in patients with Frozen Shoulder. Methodology: Convenient sampling was done for the selection of participants. 32 participants who met the inclusion criteria were recruited from various hospitals of Vadodara. The participants were divided into 2 groups; Only Conventional Therapy group and MET along with Conventional Therapy Group. Baseline data were collected in the form of NPRS, PMI, PML, Shoulder ROM and SPADI . After 20 sessions, the participants were evaluated again. Result: The data were analyzed using unpaired t test and there was statistically significant improvement in MET along with conventional Therapy group (p< 0.01). Conclusion: The present study concludes that Pectoral muscles MET has got an added beneficial effect for decreasing disability and improving function in patients with Frozen shoulder along with conventional therapy. The participants treated with MET added to conventional therapy recovered to a greater extent than those treated only with conventional therapy.
