Background: Adhesive capsulitis is a painful condition and makes functional disability as a result of the limited range of motion (ROM) of the shoulder girdle. Various treatments, including mobilization and manipulation techniques have been advocated for restoration of a pain-free state and to restore the functional activity of upper extremity. Application of manual therapy may produce the good improvement in case of adhesive capsulitis shoulder. There is a need to compare the effects of Maitland and Mulligan techniques on various parameters in adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder. Objective: To evaluate the effects of Maitland technique and Mulligan technique in adhesive capsulitis of shoulder. Methods: The study population consisted of patients diagnosed as adhesive capsulitis. Visual analogue scale and other parameters were measured at baseline and at 3 weeks of intervention as per group allotment. Results: Mulligan and Maitland mobilization improved exercise performance significantly, while it is known that trust technique imposed by these technique is low. Mean improvements in ROM exceeded in the group received by Mulligan group. Conclusion: There is significant improvement in and coracohumeral ligament (CHL) and Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) B27 (HLA-B27) following 4 weeks of Mulligan and Maitland mobilization training for adhesive capsulitis.
