Abstract

Mobilization techniques and soft tissue techniques are widely used in managing Adhesive Capsulitis. Among
various researches on different mobilization, the study results showed that the clinical concepts of Mulligan’s
Mobilization with movement is good. The results of various studies on different soft tissue techniques
concluded that post isometric relaxation technique of Muscle energy technique is better. The aim of the
study was to compare the effect of Mulligan’s Mobilization with movement and post isometric relaxation
technique on pain, range of motion and functional outcome in subjects with Adhesive Capsulitis. 30 subjects
were selected and divided into 2 groups of 15 subjects in each group by purposive sampling method. Subjects
in Group A received Mulligan’s Mobilization with movement and conventional management, subjects in
Group B received post isometric relaxation technique and conventional management for 4 weeks. Numerical
Pain Rating Scale, Universal goniometer and Shoulder pain and disability index were used to measure pain,
range of motion and functional outcome. There was a significant difference between the within group and
between group in all parameters following intervention. However, Mulligan’s group has shown significant
improvement in all parameters ( using unpaired ‘t’ test, the calculated ‘t’ value for pain is 10.27, p<0.05
and the ‘t’ value for ROM is 22.45 for external rotation, 14.95 for abduction, p<0.05 and the ‘t’ value for
functional outcome is 6.71, p<0.05). This study concludes that the Mulligan’s mobilization with movement
is more effective in reducing pain, improving range of motion and functional outcome in subjects with
Adhesive Capsulitis.
