Periarthritis of the shoulder is a painful condition with gradual restriction of the shoulder joint. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of Gong’s mobilization and Scapular and Glenohumeral mobilization on pain, shoulder abduction, internal rotation range of motion and functional disability in patients with periarthritis of the shoulder. Methods: An experimental study design, A total of 60 subjects with Periarthritis of the shoulder were selected and randomly assigned into 2 groups, 30 members in group A (Gong’s mobilization), 30 members in group B (Scapular and Glenohumeral mobilization). Both groups received intervention as 5 treatment sessions per week for 4 weeks. The outcome measure of pain was measured using VAS, shoulder range of motions using Goniometer, and functional disability was measured using shoulder pain and disability index. Results: The results showed a statistically significant difference in decreasing pain, increasing range of motion, and decreasing functional disability when compared between pre-test and post-test interventions within the group using paired “t” test. When compared between groups post interventions scores using independent “t” test, a statistically significant difference was found with Gong’s mobilization when compared with Scapular and Glenohumeral mobilization. Conclusion: - Gong’s mobilization has shown to be more effective when compared to Scapular and Glenohumeral mobilization in decreasing pain, increasing range of motion, and decreasing functional disability in subjects with periarthritis of the shoulder.
