Access from EThOS:
Subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS) is the most common diagnosis made in patients with chronic shoulder pain, accounting for 44-65% of all complaints of shoulder pain. SIS is a clinical diagnosis describing a multifactorial pathology applied to a condition whose main clinical symptoms are anterior or anterior-lateral superior shoulder pain, associated with restricted elevation of the arm or when attempting overhead activities, but without specific clinical tests. This study uses a battery of clinical, functional and EMG investigations in well-defined patient and control groups, in order to identify and measure aberrations in shoulder movements common to patients with SIS, to establish the consequences for shoulder girdle control and ultimately to suggest which therapeutic strategies might be most successful.
