Background and Aim: Shoulder pain and weakness of stabilizing muscles is one of the complications of shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS), which is common in swimmers. Kinesio-Taping (KT) has been welcomed as a new and sometimes complementary therapeutic approach for improving post-traumatic function. Purpose this study was performed to investigate the acute and long-term effect of Kinesio-taping (KT) on shoulder pain and functional stability in Swimmers with Shoulder Impingement Syndrome (SIS).
Materials and Methods: In this quasi-experimental study (randomized control trial), 28 swimmers with SIS randomly allocated to two groups: taping and control group. We use Davis test and Upper quarter Y-balance test (UQYBT) to assess the functional stability of the shoulder girdle, and also the visual analogue scale (VAS) were used to assess pain. The data were gathered in three level pre-test, 20 minutes and 72 hours after the procedure. For statistical analysis of repeated-measures analyses of variance (ANOVAs) with significance level of α <0.05 and SPSS software were used.
Results: The results of the study showed that within group differences in time factor and interaction between time and group were significant in all dependent variables (p <0.05) and between group differences in pain and Davis variables were significant (p <0.05).
Conclusion: Given the results, Kinesio-Taping can provide a basis for reducing pain and improving the functional stability of the shoulder girdle of swimmers with SIS, Kinesio-Taping can be used as a complimentary treatment technique in people with shoulder impingement syndrome as well as to prevent possible injuries in the area.
