Official Title: The Effect of Myofascial Release in Patients With Subacromial Impingement Syndrome Randomized Controlled Trial

Brief Summary:

BACKGROUND: Shoulder pain has been reported to be the third most common musculoskeletal presentation in primary care, after low back pain and knee pain.
The prognosis for those presenting with musculoskeletal shoulder pain varies greatly amongst individuals, with 50% of people reporting symptoms 6 months after presenting in primary healthcare.
Functional limitations, in addition to pain, are widespread and can interfere with job, hobbies, social, and sporting activities.
They may also relate to psychological discomfort and a lower quality of life.
Continuous computer uses without a break, awkward postures, and the duration and frequency of laptop use have all been identified as risk factors for musculoskeletal diseases.
The most prevalent cause, accounting for 70% of cases, is rotator cuff dysfunction.
Rotator cuff disorders are frequently associated with short and long-term impairment and discomfort, with approximately fifty percent of patients experiencing pain or functional restrictions for up to two years.
The majority of shoulder pain concerns are treated in primary care by physiotherapists and general practitioners.
Myofascial release is a common hands-on method manual therapy technique that uses carefully guided low load, long duration mechanical pressures to modify the myofascial complex with promising results in improving functional level.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of myofascial release in patient with rotator cuff tendinopathy.

METHOD: The design of this study is a double blinded Randomize control trail.
Forty-two participants will be divided into one of two groups, group one will have strengthening exercises, range of motion exercise, and ice application, group two will perform the same exercises with ice application plus myofascial release.
Patient will be followed for one month, two session per week and the session duration will be 30-45 mins.
Assessment and re-assessment will be done by independent physical therapist.
All patients will be assessed by using quick DASH, VAS, ROM, and Kessler psychological distress scale.
