Abstract

Background: Shoulder subluxation is the common problem as it causes shoulder pain and hinders activity

. In flaccid stage, propreoceptive impairment, lack of tone and muscle paralysis reduce the support and

normal stirring action of rotator cuff muscles particularly supraspinatus. Methods: Ethical clearance was

obtained from Institutional Ethical Comittee, KIMSDU, Karad. An Experimental study was conducted with

50 subjects .Which were divided into two groups using consecutive sampling with random allocation with

computer generated table. Group A was given conventional treatment for reducing shoulder subluxation in

stroke survivors Group B was treated with the Therapeutic shoulder sling and proximal control exercises

.The outcome measures were AP lat X-ray, VAS, Functional outcome measurement By Motor assessment

scale :Upper arm function. Results: Within the group comparison for the X-ray was done with the pair t test

which was very significant for group A with P value of 0.0301 and Extremely significant for group B with

P value ?0.0001 . within the group comparison for visual analogue scale for both the groups is extremely

significant with the p value of ?0.0001 .within the group comparison for motor assessment scale for both the

groups is extremely significant with the p value of ?0.0001 Conclusions: Therapeutic shoulder sling with

proximal control exercises shows significant reduction of subluxation in shoulder x-ray as well as it reduces

the pain and improves ADL activity.
