Purpose: To find out the effects of Maitland mobilization technique & exercise with therapeutic ultrasound in
adhesive capsulitis.
Materials and Methods: Total of 28 participants were selected from Vijay physiotherapy clinic and divided into
two groups. Group A was allocated with 14 participants and managed with Maitland mobilization technique and
ultrasound. Group B 14 participants were managed with exercises and ultrasound for 4 weeks. The participant’s
intervention effects were assessed using VAS, SPADI Scale and Range of motion Study Period: November 2022 to
