Using Efficiency of Relaxation - Opposition and Miotensive Techniques to Increase the Shoulder Movement Amplitude in Supraspinos Tendinitis
Keywords:facilitation, abduction, external rotation, pain, recovery
The study was performed on a number of 20 subjects with the clinical diagnosis of supraspinatus tendonitis, over two years. These were divided into 2 groups: experimental and control, each consisting of 10 subjects. Thus, the control group benefited from 10 electrotherapy sessions (IF, TENS and US) and a classical physiotherapy program (10 sessions) and the experimental group: electrotherapy (IF, TENS and US) and facilitation techniques: Relaxation - Opposition and Miotensive with the same number of sessions. The results obtained confirm the hypothesis from which it was started, so the amplitude on the abduction and external rotation movement recorded in the experimental group reached normal values after 7 sessions, compared to the control group which, after 10 sessions remained with amplitude deficit on abduction movement and external rotation.
