Abstract

Background: A variety of subacromial space disorders, such as partial thickness rotator cuff tears, rotator cuff
tendinosis, calcific tendinitis, and subacromial bursitis, are usually accompanied by shoulder pain, for which dry
needling is observed effectively.
Purpose: To compare the effectiveness of dry needling technique vs mobilization on pain reduction among PA
shoulder patients.
Materials and Methods: It’s an Experimental study with inclusion criteria of age between 35-60, patient diagnosed
of frozen shoulder/adhesive capsulitis, pain for more than a month was included. Patients having a history of
inflammatory arthritis and post fracture complications were excluded. Thirty subjects were selected and divided
into group A(n=15) and group B(n=15). Interventions were given for 4 weeks, 5 days per week. Pre-test and posttest values were calculated and tabulated using Goniometer and SPADI scale. The entire study was conducted
from November 2022 to April 2023.
Results: Statistical analysis of pre and post-test values of Range of Motion and SPADI revealed significant
differences between experimental and conventional groups, With the P value of <0.0001.
Conclusion: The results and the data obtained from this research showed that mobilization was more effective
than dry needling technique in subjects with PA Shoulder.
