This study aims to lineate the efficacy of the two treatment regimens (Group A: Codman’s Exercise with Therapeutic Ultrasound and Group B: Codman’s Exercise alone). The study had a Pre & Post experimental design. Each of the subjects were divided into two groups with two distinct interventions. After the treatment the VAS score in ultrasound and Codman’s exercise group was 5.86 and 1.18 respectively and in only Codman’s exercise group was 5 and 1.13 respectively. In context to SPADI score the mean and standard deviation after the treatment in ultrasound and Codman’s exercise group was 62.70 and 5.28 respectively and in only Codman’s exercise group was 56.01 and 4.75 respectively. Overall results show that, there is significant improvement in pain, disability and Movement (VAS, SPADI and ROM respectively) in both the treatment groups. However, as compared between two groups: Group A is supposed to have significant outcomes as compared to the Group B. In conclusion to the findings, Ultrasound with Codman’s exercise is expected to ameliorate pain and increase function if incorporated in the treatment regime of the cases with Adhesive Capsulitis.
