Abstract: Background and Purpose: Idiopathic adhesive capsulitis is defined as a self-limiting condition of unknown etiology. It is characterized by restriction in the shoulder range of motion in a capsular pattern. Principles of treatment of adhesive capsulitis are to relieve pain, maintain ROM and ultimately to restore function. The purpose of this study is to find out the effectiveness of maitland technique and muscle energy technique in decreasing pain and increasing ROM in patients with stage II idiopathic shoulder adhesive capsulitis. Methodology: Patients from private clinic and department diagnosed with shoulder adhesive capsulitis were included in this study. Subjects were selected from both the gender between 40-60 years of age with capsular pattern. In respective with the criteria of the study 10 participants were filtered for the study and were randomized to 2 groups for 2 types of treatment. Group A was given Maitland Technique and group B was given METS. The outcome measure was taken by using SPADI, VAS and goniometer. Results: Descriptive analysis of 10 subjects using excel calculations and the graphs reveals that there was significant improvement in the outcome measures of group A who received Maitland mobilization when compared to group B who received METS. Observation: Both the treatment procedures were relatively good but the group A which received Maitland Mobilization improved the value of outcome measure in a positive aspect.
