Background: Shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS) is a painful condition of the upper extremity where is considered as a common indication for visits to primary care or orthopedic clinic worldwide. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to measure the effect of thoracic mobilization with movement (MWM) on shoulder range of motion (ROM) in patients with shoulder impingement syndrome. Methods: 40 patients aged from 25 to 40 years old with shoulder impingement syndrome participated in this study were randomly chosen from orthopedic clinic. Then, using an opaque sealed envelope, divide the subjects randomly into two groups: experimental group A (mulligan group) received Mobilization with movement (MWM) techniques on thoracic spine with traditional treatment and control group B (traditional group) received only traditional supervised exercises treatment. The subjects received the treatment three times per week for one month. Assessment of shoulder ROM was measured before the start the treatment and after treatment Results: shoulder joint flexion, abduction, internal and external rotation all improved significantly in all two groups, according to the MANOVA test study but the level of improvement in the experimental group (A) was greater than that of the control group (B). Conclusion: Mobilization with movement significantly improve shoulder joint flexion, abduction, internal and external rotation range of motion.
