Cover Story (view full-size image): We compared the effects of two eight-week, home-based, and single-exercise strengthening regimes in adults with subacromial shoulder pain. Using a randomized controlled trial design, participants were either allocated to a control (no treatment), a traditional training (external rotations with elastic bands, shoulder abducted to 0°), or an alternative training (external rotations with elastic bands, shoulder abducted to 90° and supported by a shoulder-training device) group. Compared with the control group, both training groups showed significant improvements in measures of shoulder pain and function. However, larger and more frequent effects were found in the group that used the shoulder-training device. View this paper.
