Objectives Effectiveness of Mulligan Mobilization in Frozen Shoulder Design Randomized Control Trial Methodology According to predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria, a total of 30 patients were enrolled. They were then randomly divided into two groups, each of which had 15 patients. While Group B received ultrasound treatment combined with exercises (stretching, strengthening, and ROM exercises) three times per week for four weeks, Group A had Mulligan mobilization in addition to these activities (12 sessions). The visual analog scale, the Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI), and goniometry for Shoulder Range of Motion were used to evaluate the patient's outcomes. Values from before and after the therapy were kept in order to compare the outcomes. Results This research demonstrated that the patient's range of motion in external rotation, abduction, and flexion, as well as the degree of their pain, had significantly improved. Conclusion The study's findings imply that Mulligan and ultrasound may both help with frozen shoulder issues. Mulligan group had more improvement than Ultrasound group. Based on these findings, Mulligan mobilization with exercises, as opposed to ultrasound with exercises, should be the preferred method of therapy for frozen shoulder.
