Effectiveness of supervised training versus no training or self-training in patients with subacromial pain syndrome

Takeaway

  • Low-moderate certainty of evidence demonstrates that 3 months of supervised training may be superior to no training, and as effective as self-training, for critical outcomes in patients with subacromial pain syndrome (SAPS).

Why this matters

    Training methods for SAPS vary widely, and effectiveness of the various approaches has not been evaluated. This study provides low-to-moderate evidence that can help distinguish which types of training may be more effective for certain outcomes.
