About

Erb's Palsy is a physical impairment resulting from an injury to the upper trunk of the brachial plexus and is associated with paralysis of the upper limb. When the neck is stretched up and move away from the wounded shoulder while the shoulder is pressed down, damage to the top nerves that make up the brachial plexus is more likely to damage .These injuries occur due to traumatic activities(vehicle accidents),difficult births(breeched presentation ,prolonged labor and high birth weight).This study proposes to analyze the effects of activity based scapular mobilization on upper limb functions in children who have been diagnosed with Erb's Palsy. This will be a randomized control trial study. Data will be collected from 30 patients who will be randomly assigned to two groups of equal numbers experimental and control group each with 15. The participants of the experimental group will be treated with scapular mobilization ,activity based scapular mobilization(codman pendulum exercises,scapular pushups, band wall apart,wall ball circles and advance study wall pushups) along with conventional physical therapy program. Participants of control group is treated with activity based scapular mobilization and conventional physical therapy program. Patient evaluation will be made at the beginning and end of the treatment. Data will be analyzed through SPSS 25.

Full description

Data will be collected from M.Islam teaching hospital Gujranwala and district health quarter Gujranwala .30 patients will be randomly assigned into two groups of equal numbers experimental and control group each with 15. Control group will receive conventional physical therapy program including ( heating to improve circulation and release muscle tension ,EMS ,stretching for stiff muscle, weight bearing, strengthening exercises and graduated active exercises)for 20 minutes along with activity based scapular mobilization( Codman pendulum exercises, ban wall apart, wall ball circles, scapular pushups and advance study wall pushups)for 20 minutes with 5 minute resting interval. Experimental group will be treated with manual scapular mobilization in upward rotation and downward rotation, adduction and abduction of scapula. Sets of 10 repetitions were applied with a rest interval of 30 seconds between set for 20 minutes, activity based scapular mobilization(Codman pendulum exercises, scapular pushups, band wall apart ,wall ball circles and advance study wall pushups) along with conventional physical therapy program(heating,EMS,stretching for tight muscles , strengthening exercises and graduated active exercises) for 25 minutes.

Scapular mobilization
Experimental group
Description:
This Experimental group will be treated with manual scapular mobilization in upward rotation and downward rotation, adduction and abduction of scapula. Sets of 10 repetitions were applied with a rest interval of 30 seconds between set for 20 minutes, activity based scapular mobilization(Codman pendulum exercises, scapular pushups, band wall apart ,wall ball circles and advance study wall pushups) along with conventional physical therapy program(heating,EMS,stretching for tight muscles , strengthening exercises and graduated active exercises) for 25 minutes
Treatment:
Other: Scapular mobilization
Conventional physical therapy program
Active Comparator group
Description:
This group will receive conventional physical therapy program including ( heating to improve circulation and release muscle tension ,EMS ,stretching for stiff muscle, weight bearing, strengthening exercises and graduated active exercises)for 20 minutes along with activity based scapular mobilization( Codman pendulum exercises, ban wall apart, wall ball circles, scapular pushups and advance study wall pushups)for 20 minutes with 5 minute resting interval.
Treatment:
Other: Conventional physical therapy program
