Abstract

Background: Shoulder impingement pain is caused by the compression of the rotator cuff and the subacromial
bursa. Reduced scapular stability was found to cause shoulder impingement. So, the purpose of the study was to
identify whether scapula stability taping vs. scapular stabilization exercise is more effective in the treatment of
shoulder impingement pain.
Purpose: To compare the effectiveness of scapula stabilization exercise versus scapula stability taping on shoulder
impingement pain.
Methods: This experimental study has been conducted from November 2022 to April 2023. 58 subjects were
divided into Group A (29 Subjects) and Group B (29 Subjects). Group A was treated with shoulder stabilization
exercises, and Group B was treated with shoulder stability taping. The treatments were given for 4 days per week
and continued for 4 weeks.
Result: The results showed that the subject’s pain, shoulder ROM, and disability improved statistically stabilization
exercise Group than stability taping Group.
Conclusion: Findings conclude that 4 weeks of scapular stabilization exercises were found to be more effective in
increasing scapular muscle strength in preventing shoulder impingement.
