J Phys Ther Sci.

Next, in order to measure the external and internal rotations, the coracoid and clavicle were pressed by one kkaltenborn to stabilize the scapula, while the forearm was rotated toward the foot and head in cases of internal and external rotation, respectively, by the other hand to measure the passive joint ROM.

Maricar N, Chok B: The effect of anterior versus posterior glide joint mobilization on external rotation range of motion in patients with shoulder adhesive capsulitis. The term available range of movement is intended to describe the ka,tenborn movement as perceived by the therapist after the patient has been positioned and at the time the technique is applied. A comparison of the effect mobilizstion manual therapy with exercise therapy and exercise therapy alone for stiff shoulders.

A visual analogue scale VAS was used to measure pain intensity pre- and post-intervention.

Kaltenborn Concept

Stability of the shoulder joint. Acta Orthop Scand, Fisioterapia Manual, Columna, 2nd ed. The average value of three measurements was used for the analysis. The attachment of the capsule on concave is close to the joint line, while the attachment on convex is far away from the joint line. J Shoulder Elbow Surg, Any abnormal movement in the scapula was prevented in order to maintain a stable shoulder abduction degree. Toggle navigation p Physiopedia. Acta Orthop Traumatol Turc, Arthroscopy, The significance of shape.


Thus, the posterior translation applied in the present study likely contributed to the increased internal rotation by stretching the posterior capsule. Mobilkzation the location where the therapist intended to apply the force.

Kaltenborn Concept – MANUAL MOBILIZATION

The therapist moves a convex joint surface opposite to the direction of restricted movement to provoke the capsule in the same direction as the glide. Am J Emerg Med, Joint capsule contracture is frequently observed in rotator cuff intervals among FS patients Next, posterior translation was applied to the humeral head using the other hand. Physiother Singap, 2: Maricar and Chok 13 report no significant difference in the treatment effects between MM and another exercise program in a study of FS patients.

The results indicate the oscillatory technique mobilizaiton MM and sustained stretch technique in KM combined with therapeutic modalities were both effective for treating external and internal rotation ROM deficits frequently observed among FS patients as well as reducing pain. Shoulder function in patients with frozen shoulder before and after 4-week rehabilitation. The role of the rotator interval capsule in passive motion and stability of the shoulder.

The Kaltenborn treatment plan is important to define the directions of tractions and glides. Interamericana,pp 27— The task force suggests that replication of techniques among therapists will be mpbilization easily achieved if clearly palpable structures are used as reference points. With the patient in the supine position, the damaged scapula was fixated by placing a wedge underneath.


This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Ann Rheum Dis, Its incidence is higher among office workers than laborers and higher among females than males; the non-dominant shoulder is more likely to develop FS 4.

Finally, the direction of mobilization applied for treatment was not diverse enough. The translation was applied a set for 30 seconds for 15 sets over 10 minutes; after each set, the patient rested in a neutral position for approximately 10 seconds.

J Physiol, FA Davis,pp — There was a problem during the HTTP request: Abstract [Purpose] This study compared the use of the Maitland mobilization and Kaltenborn mobilization techniques for improving pain and range of motion in patients with frozen shoulders. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Describe the direction in which the therapist imparts the force. The subjects were divided randomly into two groups to receive Maitland or Kaltenborn mobilization to the affected kalyenborn.

The patients were recommended to use their arms and shoulders within the possible ROM in daily activities, although they did not receive a home-based exercise program. Please review our mobilizatiom policy. Received Dec 5; Accepted Jan Grade I applies a distraction of minor intensity that hardly causes stress within the joint capsule; it is often used to decrease pain. Grade I and II oscillation stimuli provoke the mechanical receptor of the joint, restricting the nocuous stimulus that generates the pain stimulus, which is transmitted to the central nervous system; therefore, it is appropriate for relieving pain.

The general characteristics of the subjects are summarized in Table 1. Skip to content Kaltenborn Concept.
