Effectiveness of NeuroMuscular Taping on Painful Hemiplegic Shoulder
The description was updated.
New
The study will use two groups according to the methodology of Randomized Controlled Trials. Both components of the two groups were treated by four rehabilitation sessions defined as "standard". This involves joint health and passive mobility for the glenohumeral and scapulothoracic joints for a period of about 45 minutes each. The patients of the sample group underwent the application of the NeuroMuscular Taping (NMT) before each rehabilitative session. The control group was addressed exclusively to the "standard" treatment. The sessions were spaced apart about five days to ensure the optimum adhesion of NMT. The results were evaluated by administering rating scales for pain (VAS) and spasticity (Modified Ashworth Scale). The ROM was evaluated using the manual goniometer. The outcomes (Pain, Spasticity, ROM) were assessed at base line, before and after each treatment session and at 1 month follow up.

The results were evaluated by administering rating scales for pain (VAS) and spasticity (Modified Ashworth scale). The ROM was evaluated using the Clarkson and Gilevich joint examination. Primary outcomes (Pain, spasticity, ROM) were assessed at base line, before and after each treatment session and at 1 month follow up.
