ABSTRACT

Background: Shoulder impingement syndrome is the common condition of the shoulder which results in considerable morbidity and financial cost in the healthcare industry. Pain, reduced strength and disability are the main problems seen in SIS. Few studies are available for treating patients with SIS using kinesio taping in general population. Most similar studies were conducted on specific population. Hence a need arise to rule out the usefulness of addition of kinesio taping to conventional exercise for SIS patients with forward head posture. Objective of the study was to find out the effect of kinesio taping in improving pain, disability and forward head posture in patients with SIS.

Methods: 30 subjects were recruited in this study after obtaining an informed consent and divided into two groups; Group (A) (Experimental) and Group(B) (Control). Group A underwent kinesio taping, conventional exercise and Group B underwent conventional exercises. Interventions were conducted over 1 week, KT application 2 times/week and conventional exercise 3 times daily. All subjects were assessed for pain, disability and forward head posture using VAS, DASH questionnaire and CVA using Kinovea software before and after intervention period.

Result: There is significance difference between pain, disability and forward head posture after the application of kinesio taping in patients with SIS. Analysis was done using Wilcoxon signed rank test and Mann Whitney U test.

Conclusion: This study concluded that kinesio taping is effective for improving pain, disability and forward head posture in patients with SIS.

Keywords: Disability, Forward head posture, Kinesio tape, Kinovea software, Subacromial impingement.
