Context: Frozen shoulder is a common condition which is seen in 2%–5% of the general population. It is a self-limiting condition which affects the range of motion of the patients in a capsular pattern. Aims: Although Pune Shoulder Rehabilitation Programme (PSRP) is being used for treating this condition still no study has been documented to find its efficacy as compared to conventional physiotherapy methods. Settings and Design: This was a quasi-experimental study and the study was done at Smt. Kashibai Navale General Hospital and Physiotherapy Outpatient Department, Pune. Institutional ethical clearance was taken on 7/8/2018 ref no. SKNCOPT/IEC/16/2018 before the commencement of this study. Subjects and Methods: Based on the study's inclusion criteria, 32 subjects were selected. The PSRP exercises were taught to each subject and given 10 repetitions with a hold of 10 s. For at least 45 min, each patient was treated. Patient's shoulder range of motion and visual analog scale were taken at the pretreatment, 2nd week, 4th week, and 6th week, respectively. Statistical Analysis Used: The data were analyzed using Primer software with a level of significance P < 0.05. Repeated measure ANOVA was used to compare the outcome measures within the group. Results: The findings showed that over the 6th-week protocol, statistically significant improvements were found in pain and shoulder range of motion. Conclusion: PSRP exercise protocol is effective in increasing the range of motion and decreasing the pain in the shoulder caused by frozen shoulder.
