Introduction: Avabahuka a disease of shoulder joint is very much similar to frozen shoulder. Marma therapy is the manipulation of subtle energy (prana) in the body for the purpose of supporting the healing process. In this stimulation of marma points on the body is done which removes blockages from the marma points giving physical and psychological relaxation and strength. Aims and objectives: To observe efficacy and safety of marma therapy in patients of Avabahuka in the clinical setting. Materials and methods: An observational retrospective cohort design was adopted for the study. Total 21 patients suffering from Avabahuk (secondary frozen shoulder), aged between 30-70years (average 49 years) were selected from the OPD of RARIND Mandi Himachal Pradesh India.
