Abstract
Background: Adhesive capsulitis of shoulder is one of the common cause of stiffness and pain of the shoulder joint. Globally it is estimated that around 2%-5% of the population were affected by adhesive capsulitis. Even though it is a self-limiting condition, it’s difficult for the patient to wait for such a long period to heal as it interferes with the activities of daily life. There is evidence of scapular kinematic alterations associated with shoulder impingement, rotator cuff tendinopathy, rotator cuff tears, glen humeral instability, adhesive capsulitis, and stiff shoulders. The study aims to analyze whether taping can be used as an adjunct to stretching and strengthening exercise program in correction of scapular alignment in patients with adhesive capsulitis.
Methods: Twenty clinically diagnosed adhesive capsulitis subjects were randomly divided in to two groups A and B. Group A received stretching and strengthening exercise program along with taping group and group B received stretching and strengthening exercise program alone. Intervention lasted for 2 weeks, one hour per day. Dynamic scapular alignment was assessed by lateral scapular slide test before and after 2 weeks of intervention.
Conclusion: Stretching and strengthening exercise program along with taping and stretching and strengthening exercise program alone were effective in repositioning normal scapular alignment. When comparing both stretching and strengthening exercise program along with taping is more effective in repositioning normal scapular alignment among patients with adhesive capsulitis
