Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Rehabilitation and balance training

Each patient will attend rehabilitation program for three days per week for six weeks. Patients will receive balance training in addition to supervised rehabilitation program which is including patient education, hot pack, stretching and strengthening exercises.

Patients will also implement home exercise program. Balance training will be non-supervised program.

Other: Rehabilitation and balance training

Firstly, we will use heat pack as a modality to affected shoulder. Then, stretching will be applied as hold-relax technique in PNF for shoulder flexion, abduction, internal and external rotations. Isotonic exercises will be done with elastic bands for strengthening.

Home exercises will include postural, stretching and strengthening exercises. Balance exercises will receive as non-supervised program.

Active Comparator: Rehabilitation program

Each patient will attend rehabilitation program for three days per week for six weeks.

Patients will receive supervised rehabilitation program which is including patient education, hot pack, stretching and strengthening exercises.

Patients will also implement home exercise program.

Other: Rehabilitation program
Rehabilitation program will be same in this group except balance exercises.
