Abstract
Background: Adhesive capsulitis is characterized by a spontaneous onset of shoulder pain accompanied by progressive limitation of both active and passive glenohumeral joint movements.
Aim and objectives: This study was done to compare the effectiveness of anterior end range mobilizations to posterior end range mobilizations on shoulder pain in subjects with adhesive capsulitis stage II.
Methods: This study was conducted in 56 participants with clinical diagnosis of adhesive capsulitis stage II were randomly allocated in two groups (group A&B). Group A received Therapeutic Ultrasound, Anterior end range mobilization and pre set of prescribed home exercises and Group B received Therapeutic Ultrasound, Posterior end range mobilization and pre set of prescribed home exercises. The outcome measure was assessed in terms of Visual analogue Scale (VAS) for Pain. After collecting data, results were analyzed by using wilcoxon matched pairs test.
Results: The result shows both anterior end range mobilization (50%) and posterior end range mobilization (47.45%) are significantly (p value >0.05) effective in reducing shoulder pain in adhesive capsulitis stage II.
Conclusion: Applications of anterior and posterior end range mobilization are equally effective in reducing pain in adhesive capsulitis stage.

Key words: Adhesive capsulitis Stage II, End range Mobilization (Kaltenborn), Pain, ROM
