A. Kirthiga [2] | T. Bharaneedharan [2]


Abstract: Background of the study: Periarthritis shoulder is a common painful condition of the shoulder joint which gradually limits the range of motion and functional ability of the individual affected with this condition. Various physiotherapy approaches are available to treat the patients with periarthritis shoulder. The objective of this study was an attempt to prove the efficacy of scapular dyskinesis exercise in improving the functional activities for the patients with periarthritis shoulder. Methodology: 30 subjects with Periarthritis shoulder were selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. They were randomly allocated into 2 groups (experimental group &control group) consists of 15 subject each. Experimental group received scapular dyskinesis exercise, standardized shoulder exercise and ultrasound therapy. Control group received standardized shoulder exercise and ultrasound therapy. The subjects were assessed using an outcome measure of SPADI and Lateral scapular slide test. Result: The results were statistically analyzed by using the paired and unpaired?t? test. There were significant difference between the experimental group for SPADI 62.33 and control group 43. There were significant difference between the experimental group for LSST in Hands on hip and maximum abduction and internal rotation (1.1866 & 0.5266) in control group for LSST in Hands on hip and maximum abduction and internal rotation (1.2066 & 1.4133). Conclusion: This study proves that scapular dyskinesis exercise, standardized shoulder exercises with ultrasound therapy was found to be effective in improving the functional activities and altering the scapular abnormalities in patients with periarthitis shoulder.
