Effectiveness of Telerehabilitation Program in Subacromial Syndrome (Telerehab Sis)

2016-09-21 20:23:21 | BioPortfolio


Shoulder pain is a common and high prevalence in the general population. Subacromial Syndrome (Shoulder Impingement Syndrome (SIS)) is the most frequent cause. SIS patients suffering pain, muscle weakness and loss of movement in the affected joint. Initial treatment of the SIS is predominantly conservative. Surgical option has high success rates and is often used when conservative strategy fails. Traditional Physiotherapy and Postoperative exercises is needed to the recovery of joint range, muscle strength, stability and functionality. This Research evaluates the feasibility and effectiveness of a telerehabilitatión Program in SIS after surgery compared with traditional therapy.


In addition to traditional physiotherapy, Telerehabilitation programs have proven their effectiveness, validity, noninferiority and important advantages in various neurological, cognitive diseases and musculoskeletal disorders; meaning an opportunity to define new social and intervention policies.

Subjects are randomly assigned to 1) Telerehabilitation Group 2) Traditional Therapy Group. After randomization, patients in both groups received an initial evaluation. Data will be collected by a blinded evaluator.

The Telerehabilitation group receives a standardized and customized exercises to perform, through a web application that allows the Physiotherapist generate videos, images and parameters of each exercise program and send them via email for each patient.

Telerehabilitation program describes the exercises to be performed, the number of repetitions depending on the level of training and criteria for progression.

Patients are initially supervised by a physiotherapist who will conduct three training sessions through individual videoconference, to ensure proper execution of exercises and encourage patient adherence. Patients are instructed to perform self-workout video exercises following Telerehabilitation program as well as a supporting document we call Telerehabilitation Manual Patient.

Traditional group receives assistance in a physiotherapy center through the usual procedure of rehabilitation in Spain, personalized therapy consisting of 1 to 1 with a physical therapist and exercise programs at home.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom.
