Effectiveness of Scapular Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation with Maitland Glenohumeral Mobilization in Adhesive Capsulitis
Keywords:Adhesive capsulitis, Maitland glenohumeral mobilization, scapular Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)mobilization, Numerical pain rating scale(NPRS), Range of motion(ROM).
Background: Adhesive capsulitis, an idiopathic condition that can cause severe disability, is characterized by
fibrosis, a reduced glenoid capsule volume, and increasing pain with loss of range of motion (ROM) in the shoulder
joint. In this study the efficiency of scapular Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) with Maitland
glenohumeral mobilization in adhesive capsulitis patients.
Purpose: This study was to evaluate the effectiveness of scapular Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
(PNF) mobilization with Maitland glenohumeral mobilization and) in subjects with adhesive capsulitis.
Methodology: Subjects were selected from out patient department of Saveetha Medical College and Hospital
among 15 subjects following inclusion and exclusion criteria. Quasi-experimental study design, Convenient
sampling is the sampling method. Range of motion and the numerical pain rating scale (NPRS) two outcome
measures. Both the universal goniometer for ROM and the numerical pain rating scale (NPRS), which were used
as outcome measures for adhesive capsulitis, were measured before and after the 16th therapy session. For four
weeks, the treatment consisted of four-week sessions.
Conclusion: As a result of the findings, it was concluded that Scapular Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
with Maitland Glenohumeral Mobilization was effective in improving the Range of motion and reducing pain in
