Abstract
Introduction: Shoulder impingement clinical syndrome which occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become irritated and inflamed as they pass through the subacromial space, the passage beneath the acromion. This can result in pain, weakness and loss of movement at the shoulder.
Aims & Objectives: The purpose of the study is to find the effectiveness of scapular stabilization exercises and myofascial release in the management of pain and grip strengthening among shoulder impingement syndrome patients.
Materials and Methods: Scapular stabilization exercises and Myofascial release therapy were given for 20 subjects 10 in each group. Data was analysed by unpaired t-test and paired t- test P value < 0.05 was considered as statistically significant.
Result: When comparing the mean values of Group A and Group B, both groups have shown significant difference in scapular position and muscle endurance. Hence it is concluded that Scapular stabilization and Deep neck flexor strengthening exercise effective among scapular dyskinesis patients.
Conclusion: From the statistical results, it can be concluded there is significant difference in scapular position and muscle endurance in both groups. When comparing the mean value it is found that the both group treated with Scapula stabilization exercise and Deep neck flexor strengthening exercise were effective in patients with scapular dyskinesis.
