Scapular taping in the treatment of anterior shoulder impingement.


:The purpose of this case report is to describe how taping designed to promote proximal scapular stability was used in conjunction with other physical therapy interventions to manage a patient with anterior shoulder impingement. The taping technique is described in detail. The evaluation and treatment of a patient with an 8-month history of shoulder pain are described as an example of when this type of taping procedure may be indicated. This case report demonstrates that a patient was able to return to all of his regular overhead sports activities without pain following scapular taping used in combination with a home exercise program. Presumably, the improved resting position of the scapula corrected faulty scapulothoracic joint movements.
