Abstract:
Adhesive capsulitis is one of the commonest musculoskeletal disorder that has a disabling capacity and is characterized by pain and restriction of range of motion in shoulder joint. McKenzie Therapy is well-known and commonly applied in the management of spinal disorders and more recently the principles and mechanical syndromes have been applied to extremities. The purpose of the study is to assess the effectiveness of McKenzie therapy on pain, range of motion and shoulder functions using Penn shoulder score in individuals with stage II adhesive capsulitis. It is a pre-post experimental study design which was conducted on 20 individuals both male and females aged between 40-60years and clinically diagnosed with stage II adhesive capsulitis. The participants received MDT therapy for 5 consecutive sessions and the baseline and post 5th day intervention outcome measure were assessed using Numerical pain rating scale, ROM shoulder and Penn Shoulder Score. The results in the study showed highly statistical significant changes (p value 0.0001) on pain, shoulder range of motion and shoulder functions. The study concluded that McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) treatment was highly effective in improving the range of motion, reducing pain at the shoulder joint and furthermore improving the shoulder functions using Penn shoulder score in individuals with stage II adhesive capsulitis.
