Abstract:

Introduction: Shoulder joint (Glenohumeral Joint) is one of the most functional Joint involved in daily routines including performances, occupational and recreational activities. These joints in human body get affected by different disabilities, of which arthritis represents a major one.
Objectives: To compare the efficacy of muscle energy technique and maitland mobilization coupled with ultrasound in patients with periarthritis of the glenohumeral joint.
Methodology: Twenty (20) individuals diagnosed with periarthritis of glenohumeral joint were randomly allocated for this study. The individuals were treated with therapeutic ultrasound coupled with Muscle Energy Technique (Group A) and Maitland Mobilization (Group B). The treatment was given for 45 minutes a day up to 2 (Two) months. The outcome was measured in terms of shoulder pain and disability index (SPADI). 
Results: Independent t-test was used to compare the pre-test and post-test values between each groups. On comparing the mean values of SPADI of two groups, the study shown a significant increase in the post-test values of ultrasound coupled with muscle energy technique than ultrasound coupled with Maitland Mobilization. 
Conclusion: Ultrasound coupled with muscle energy technique is more effective than Maitland mobilization in reducing pain and disability, enhancing shoulder function among periarthritis individuals.
