Objective: To compare the results obtained in the reduction of pain symptoms, and in the recovery of the right shoulder joint range in athletes presenting acute pain and functional limitation on the right shoulder, through two different approaches: planned physical activity and planned physical activity with application of taping rubber band.
Design: Case-control study.
Setting: University of Urbino (Italy).
Subjects: Thirty athletes subjects suffering from acute painful symptoms of the right shoulder with reduction of the joint ROM.
Interventions: 30 people divided into two randomized groups: Group A consisting of 15 people undergoing scheduled physical activity and weekly application of elastic taping (36 sessions of scheduled physical activity and 12 of tape applications) and group b of 15 people undergoing only scheduled physical activity (36 sessions of scheduled physical activity).
Main measures: Vas scale, R.O.M. Protractor evaluation, Functional tests
Results & Conclusion: All patients achieved positive results with pain reduction and shoulder rom but the patients treated with elastic taping and planned physical activity achieved a more significant recovery of joint Rom (extra rotation and abduction) and a greater reduction of pain measured with the vas scale.
