Abstract

Adhesive capsulitis, describes the common shoulder condition characterized by painful and limited active and passive range of motion (ROM). The purpose of this study is to find out the effectiveness of active release technique and muscle energy technique on subscapularis trigger points in adhesive capsulitis.60 subjects were assessed according to inclusion criteria and randomly divided into three groups; Group A (n=20) received active release technique and conventional therapy, Group B (n=20) received muscle energy technique and conventional therapy, Group C (n=20) received only conventional therapy. VAS (visual analog scale), Goniometer, SPADI (shoulder pain and disability index) were measured pre and post treatment. Significant difference was seen in all the three groups but there was more improvement in Group A and B subjects than C. when Group A and B are compared there was immediate improvement in Group A subjects than B. The study concluded that there was immediate improvement in group A subjects than B and C groups in treating subscapularis trigger points in adhesive capsulitis.
