Shoulder impingement is one of the major causes of shoulder pain accounting to about almost 30%. It is classified as structural or functional and is commonly seen in patients with repetitive overhead activity. The patient was a 25-year-old active male involved in cricket as a part of his recreational activity. He complained of severe pain every time his arm came near his ear while bowling. As the pain did not subside on its own, he decided to take medical intervention. The patient received a combined intervention of Spencer's mobilization and Agnikarma for three sessions for a period of 1 week. Pre- and posttreatment muscle strength and functional disability were documented. Pre to post intervention showed significant improvement in muscle strength and functional disability. The combined effect of mobilization with Agnikarma is found promising on short-term basis.
