Abstract

Background: The background of the study is the incidence of Movement restriction among Periarthritis subjects
which affects the Pressure pain threshold and Functional activity of the shoulder.
Purpose: To compare the effectiveness of shoulder strengthening exercises in patients with Periarthritis Shoulder.
To evaluate the effect of pain and functional activity by pressure algometer and SPADI.
Materials and methods: The two groups; Group-A (Mulligan Mobilisation with Movement) and Group-B
(Shoulder strengthening exercises) were randomly assigned. The pre-test assesses Pressure Pain Threshold by
utilising a pressure algometer and Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI) Questionnaires to assess Shoulder
Functional Activity among periarthritis shoulder in both the groups. The Group-A(MWM) has received Mulligan
Mobilisation with Movement for a period of 4 weeks. In contrast to Group-B,which has received shoulder
strengthening exercises for periarthritis shoulder.The same tests were measured after 4 weeks of treatment as
post-test values.
Results: The pretest and post test values significant difference (p<0.0001)between groups A(MWM) and B(Shoulder
strengthening exercises).The study showed that MWM has a major impact on recovery of PPT and Functional
activity affected in Periarthritis shoulder participants.
Conclusion: The Mulligan mobilisation with movement was effective on improving the Functional activity and
reduction in pressure pain threshold.
