Background: Periarthritis Shoulder is common condition of the shoulder joint, affecting 2% of the general population. Periarthritis is characterized by initially painful and later progressively restricted active and passive range of motion of the shoulder joint. Mobilization is a passive manual therapy applied to joints and related soft tissues at varying speeds and amplitudes for therapeutic purposes. If Periarthritis shoulder has considerable effect on dominant versus non dominant shoulder, the dominant shoulder has more effects in decreasing pain and increasing movement than non-dominant shoulder. This is based on cerebral dominance, lateralization of pain and side to side symmetry.

Aim: To determine the recent research evidence for the Effectiveness of Shoulder Mobilization on abduction in Dominant or Non dominant Periarthritic Shoulder.

Method: this review includes simple randomized controlled trail (RCTS). Subjects with Periarthritis shoulder attending physiotherapy outpatient department at KGH and VAPMS College of physiotherapy would be included in this study.

Results: present outcomes show that mobilization in dominant Periarthritic shoulder is effective in reducing pain and increasing range of motion (ROM) than non-dominant Periarthritic shoulder without adverse effects.
