Effect of Scapular Clock Exercise Versus Scapular PNF Exercise on Pain and ROM for Anterior Capsular Stiffness of Shoulder Joint
Keywords:Adhesive capsulitis, shoulder restriction, anterior capsular stiffness, scapular PNF exercise, scapular clock exercise, NPRS, ROM.
Background: Adhesive capsulitis is a also known as frozen shoulder. Adhesive Capsulitis is a condition that
causes stiffness around the shoulder joint, excruciating agony, and limited shoulder range of motion. The onset
of this sickness is extremely slow, and the process of regaining pain-free shoulder function is likewise gradual.
Most diabetes patients are affected by it. For participants with anterior capsular stiffness, the goal of this study is
to examine the effects of scapular PNF exercise with scapular clock exercise on pain and range of motion.
Purpose: The Purpose of the study is to determine the effectiveness of scapular clock exercise versus scapular PNF
exercise in reducing pain and ROM for anterior capsular stiffness of shoulder joint.
Materials and Methods: A sample of 20 were taken according to selection criteria for this experimental study
which was divided into two groups, scapular clock exercise with IFT (n=10) and scapular PNF exercise with IFT
(n=10) were given. Interventions were given as 6 sessions a week is given and continued for 4 weeks. The pre-test
and post-test values were taken. The values were tabulated and statistically evaluated. Study period: November
2022 to apirl 2023
Result: The result revealed that the mean of scapular PNF exercise at the post-test was found to be higher than the
mean value of scapular clock exercise with a p-value of <0.0001.
Conclusion: The study shows that scapular PNF exercise with IFT had shown higher positive outcome in managing
anterior capsular stiffness of shoulder joint.
