Background: Frozen Shoulder also formerly termed as adhesive capsulitis that causes tissue degeneration, joint capsule thickening and diminished glenoid cavity with joint restriction and pain. It is one of the most frequently observed shoulder disease in clinical setting.

Patients and Methods: 10 participants were assessed and treated between the age group of 40-60 years at Niramay Physiotherapy Centre, Belegavi, Karnataka, India.

Methods: The subjects were included in the study on the basis of convenience sampling. Outcome measures used were the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) for pain and joint Range of Motion (ROM) was assessed using a universal goniometer. VAS and Joint ROM were assessed pre-treatment and immediately after the first session.

Results: The results showed that there was significant statistical improvement in VAS and joint ROM of the frozen shoulder when treated with Matrix Rhythm Therapy. It showed positive results in reducing 30% of pain and increased shoulder ROM with just one session of treatment setting.
