Purpose: Shoulder pain is the third most common disorder of musculoskeletal system affecting 15–20% of the general population. Among these Adhesive capsulitis or Frozen shoulder is the most common. The purpose of the study was to find out the effectiveness of High Energy Advanced Laser Therapy (HEALTH) along with Mobilization techniques on improving pain and functional ability in patients with Adhesive capsulitis of shoulder. Methods: Subjects diagnosed with Adhesive capsulitis & refer for Physiotherapy treatment were recruited in this study. Subjects willing to be the part of study were divided into two groups. This Interventional study was conducted to assess effectiveness of physiotherapy treatment between two groups. In Group A, subjects were intervened by HEALTH (High Energy Advanced Laser Therapy) and Mobilization techniques along with supervised exercises for 4 weeks. The other Group B with 15 patients were treated with Mobilization techniques and supervised active exercises only. Beside these both the groups were also doing conventional active exercises for Adhesive capsulitis on regular basis twice a day. All the patients underwent intervention for four weeks and were assessed shoulder ROM, pains using Numerical Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) of total 40 points and Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI) of total 130 points before and after treatment. The collected data were converted in percentage score and entered at Microsoft Excel 2007 for statistical analysis. Descriptive statistics were calculated along with graphical and tabular presentations. For inferential statistics Student t- test and paired t-test were used to find out the significant difference between inter and intra groups respectively. Results: Out of 30 patients 19 (63.33%) female and 11 (36.66%) male with the mean and standard deviation of age was 51.33 ± 8.81 years. The total SPADI score in percentage before and after treatment of both the groups were 70.45±10.60 to 41.37±11.37 in..........
