The purpose of the study was to find out the effect of scapular stabilisation exercises for scapular dyskinesis. 60 participants (including both males and females) ranging from 40-60 years old diagnosed with unilateral phase II adhesive capsulitis and scapular dyskinesis were selected and they were randomly assigned into 2 groups (Group A-30 & Group B-30). Group A received conventional treatment for Group B in addition to conventional, scapular stabilisation exercises were given. Duration of the treatment was 2 weeks with 3 days/week. Outcome measures such as Shoulder pain and disability index and Lateral scapular slide test were measured pre and post interventions. Statistical analysis of the data was done using paired and unpaired t-test. When pre and post analysis of Shoulder pain and disability index and Lateral scapular slide test were done within group and both Group-A and Group-B showed significant improvement in both Shoulder pain and disability index and Lateral scapular slide test. Hence, it is concluded that scapular stabilisation exercises seemed to be beneficial in patients with adhesive capsulitis and scapular dyskinesis.
