Aim of the study: The Aim of the study is to compare the effect of Cyriax soft tissue release and Myofascial release technique in improving ROM and shoulder function in patients with Adhesive capsulitis. Method: 30 subjects were included in this study.The subject was assigned into two groups by simple random sampling, one group treated with Cyriax soft tissue release technique(Group A) and another group receives Myofascial release technique(Group B). The duration of treatment was 3 weeks (9 sessions) in both groups. Primary outcome measures included SPADI and ROM. Results: Overall subjects improved in both groups over 3 weeks. Statistically significant improvement was found in both Cyriax soft tissue release technique and Myofascial release technique in terms of ROM and shoulder function. Additionally, in between the groups Myofascial release technique showed statistically significant improvement in ROM and shoulder function than the Cyriax soft tissue release technique group. Conclusion: Myofascial release technique is effective than cyriax soft tissue release technique in improving ROM and shoulder function in subjects with Adhesive Capsulitis. Although both form of treatment is considerably beneficial in subject with Adhesive Capsulitis.[Full Text Article]
