Comparison of Effectiveness of Maitland Mobilization and Muscle Energy Technique in Patients with Periarthritis Shoulder Using SPADI and NPRS
Keywords:Periarthritis shoulder, Maitland mobilization, Muscle energy technique, SPADI, NPRS
Background: Periarthritis shoulder is a shoulder ailment with no recognised cause. It gradually causes the
shoulder’s range of motion to be restricted. Between 2% and 3% of the general population suffer from adhesive
shoulder capsulitis, which most frequently develops between the ages of 40-65 years. The region gradually
thickens, leading to shoulder stiffness and increase in pain.
Purpose: To compare the effectiveness of Maitland mobilization and Muscle energy technique in patients with
periarthritis shoulder using SPADI and NPRS.
Materials and Methods: Subjects were randomly allocated into two groups. Maitland mobilization group (n =
33) and Muscle Energy Technique group (n = 33). The subjects were assessed using SPADI and NPRS for pre and
post-test values. The one group treated with Maitland mobilization (grade 1 and 2) were given to the patients
along with some exercises. The other group were treated with muscle energy technique along with some exercises.
These interventions were given for 4 weeks.The entire process was conducted from November 2022 to April 2023.
Result: There was a significant improvement from pre-treatment levels in pain and ROM in Maitland mobilization
group compared to muscle energy group.
Conclusion: Hence the study concludes that there is a more significant increase in ROM and SPADI score, and a
significant decrease in pain on NPRS by Maitland mobilization as compared with Muscle energy technique
