Abstract

Background: Effectiveness of any individualized therapeutic modality in improving the range of motion of shoulder in adhesive capsulitis is questionable and the combination of therapies has contradictory results. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to check the effectiveness between the treatment modalities of Ultrasound and End range mobilization over Cryotherapy and Stretching as a treatment program in improvement of active range of motion in patients with adhesive capsulitis of shoulder. Methods: Forty subjects diagnosed to have adhesive capsulitis were randomly assigned to two groups. Subjects in Group I received Ultrasound and End range mobilization of shoulder while subjects in Group II got Cryotherapy and Stretching of shoulder. Both the groups were treated for 6 days a week for 4 weeks. ROM‘s of shoulder in abduction and external rotation were the outcome measures considered. Results: Statistical analysis was done considering p<0.05 as statistically significant and the‗t‘ values were estimated. It was found that ultrasound when combined with end range mobilization had a value of 3.4498 in comparison to 1.7773 of cryotherapy combined with stretching group. Conclusion: Ultrasound with end range mobilization produced a better result than cryotherapy with stretching and therefore can be recommended in the treatment of second stage adhesive capsulitis of shoulder.
