Abstract: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of shoulder dynamic control and strengthening exercises on shoulder function in persons with an impingement syndrome (SIS). Eight subjects with SIS were assessed weekly during nine weeks using a single-subject design (A1-B-A2). The baseline condition was first evaluated (phase A1). The second phase (B) consisted of the intervention and the assessment of its immediate effect. Finally, during the last phase (A2), the continuing effect of the intervention was evaluated. The primary outcome measure was shoulder function evaluated with the SPADI questionnaire. Secondary outcome measures were shoulder pain, muscle strength and scapular behavior. All subjects showed a clinically and statistically significant improvement in shoulder function at the end of phase B and during phase A2. Improved scapular behavior and reduction of pain were also observed. Thus, dynamic control and strengthening exercises should be promoted in the early phase of SIS rehabilitation.
