Aim: To study immediate effect of Myofascial release in pain and shoulder ROM in Stage 1 Periarthritis shoulder.
Subjects and Method: Forty individuals with painful and restricted glenohumeral ROM were selected. Subjects who were willing to participate in study and fulfil inclusion and exclusion criteria were included and randomly classified into experimental group (n=20), which received therapy consisting of Interferential therapy (IFT) (20 minutes), Hot pack (10 minutes) and Myofascial release to Upper Trapezius, Infraspinatus, Teres Major and Deltoid for an approximate duration of 15 minutes, while that of control group (n=20) received treatment without MFR. Pain levels using NPRS and shoulder ROM using Universal Goniometer were assessed pre and post - interventions by a single blinded assessor.
Results: Both groups had extremely significant improvement in outcome measures. However, Experimental group showed better results than control group.
Conclusion: The combination of myofascial release along with conventional therapy was effective in alleviating pain and improving glenohumeral ROM immediately after a single intervention session
