Abstract
Objectives:
1) To demonstrate the effectiveness of Gong’s mobilization in improving pain in patients with stage II Frozen Shoulder.
2) To demonstrate the effectiveness of Gong’s mobilization in improving abduction and medial rotation range in patients with stage II Frozen Shoulder.
3) To demonstrate the effectiveness of conventional therapy in improving pain in patients with stage II Frozen Shoulder.
4) To demonstrate the effectiveness of conventional therapy in improving abduction and medial rotation range in patients with stage II Frozen Shoulder.
5) To demonstrate the effectiveness of Gong’s mobilization versus conventional therapy on shoulder pain, abduction and Medial rotation ROM in patients with stage II Frozen Shoulder.
Methodology: 60 subjects diagnosed with stage II frozen shoulder were taken. Participants were randomly divided into two interventional groups i.e Group A (30 patients) and Group B (30 patients). All the exercises were performed in 1 set with 15 repeititions for two weeks. Ethics committee clearance was obtained. Patient’s in the control group were given moist pack for 20 minutes. conventional therapy was given including stretching and strengthening exercises. All exercises were performed in 1 set with 15 repetitions for two weeks. Patient’s in the experimental group were given Moist pack for 20 minutes followed by Stretching and strengthening exercises and mobilization for increasing shoulder medial rotation and shoulder abduction range of motion. Outcome measures used were Intensity of pain on Visual Analogue Scale and Range of motion using Goniometer.
Conclusion: The result of the research supports the premise that Gongs mobilization along with conventional therapy is more effective in the treatment of frozen shoulder than the conventional therapy alone. This study showed that there was a significant improvement in pain and ROM as a result of both Gongs mobilization with conventional therapy and conventional therapy laone, although there was more increase in ROM and decrease in pain with Gongs mobilization. Also, the study infers that, clinically, Gongs mobilization with conventional therapy can be used in combination for the physiotherapy treatment protocol for patients with frozen shoulder.
