Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

Publication Title: 
The British Journal of General Practice: The Journal of the Royal College of General Practitioners

The aim of the study is to determine which treatments for patients with subacromial pain are trusted by general practitioners (GPs) and physiotherapists, and to compare trusted treatments with evidence from a systematic critical review of the scientific literature. A two-step process was used: a questionnaire (written case simulation) and a systematic critical review. The questionnaire was mailed to 188 GPs and 71 physiotherapists in Sweden. The total response rate was 72% (186/259).

Prior systematic reviews of rehabilitation for nondescript shoulder pain have not yielded clinically applicable results for those patients with subacromial impingement syndrome (SAIS). The purpose of this study was to examine the evidence for rehabilitation interventions for SAIS. The authors used data source as the method. The computerized bibliographic databases of Medline, the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), and the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews were searched from 1966 up to and including October 2003.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the effectiveness of multimodal care for the management of soft tissue injuries of the shoulder. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, PsycINFO, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials from 1990 to 2015. Two independent reviewers critically appraised studies using the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network criteria. We used best evidence synthesis to synthesize evidence from studies with low risk of bias.

Many treatments for shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS) are available in clinical practice; some of which have already been compared with other treatments by various investigators. However, a comprehensive treatment comparison is lacking. Several widely used electronic databases were searched for eligible studies. The outcome measurements were the pain score and the Constant-Murley score (CMS).

The effect of 4-week individualized rehabilitation on shoulder muscle strength and fatigability was evaluated in 10 patients with frozen shoulder syndrome (FSS) in comparison of 10 age- and gender-matched healthy control subjects. Isometric maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) force of the shoulder flexors was measured by hand-held dynamometer. Isometric endurance of the shoulder muscles was characterized by endurance time and net impulse (NI) assessed during weight (30% MVC) holding in hand until exhaustion.

A systematic review of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) was conducted to determine the effectiveness of manual therapy (MT) techniques for the management of musculoskeletal disorders of the shoulder. Seven electronic databases were searched up to January 2007, and reference lists of retrieved articles and relevant MT journals were screened. Fourteen RCTs met the inclusion criteria and their methodological qualities were assessed using the PEDro scale.

BACKGROUND: Shoulder problems are a common complaint of the musculoskeletal system. Physical therapists treat these patients with different modalities such as exercise, massage, and shoulder taping. Although different techniques have been described, the effectiveness of taping has not yet been established.

The objective of the present study was to develop a complex of rehabilitative measures for the treatment of the patients presenting with shoulder impingement syndrome including the combined application of the robotic technology based on the Multi-Joint System (Italy) in conjunction with physical therapy and massage. In addition, we estimated dynamics of the "American assessment shoulder and elbow surgery" test, the shoulder score index, the range of motion in the shoulder joint on the affected side with the help of the Multi-Joint System.
