Abstract:
The purpose of this study is to compare changes in ultrasound findings, physical examination, and symptoms of shoulder pain between people who receive a 12-week exercise program and those who receive education only and no exercise program. It is presumed that people who receive the 12-week exercise program will significantly improve shoulder pathology and will exhibit greater decreases in shoulder pain.
