METHODS: A total of forty subjects, aged (40-65 yrs) were randomly assigned into the study group after satisfying the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Study group was assessed at baseline and after 15 sessions (alternate days in a month) for Shoulder pain and its disability index (SPADI) and range of motion. RESULTS: The study group showed significantly improvement in both statistically and clinically in pain index (P <0.002), disability index (P <0.007), total SPADI score (P<0.002), shoulder flexion (P <0.003), abduction (P <0.002) and external rotation (P <0.004).
