Abstract


  • Two clinical procedures to manage RC

    tendinopathy include ice wraps and isometric

    exercise, however, there are no

    empirical data supporting their use. This

    pilot study, conducted at the Illawarra

    Sports Medicine Clinic, NSW, Australia,

    was designed to test (1) the short term

    analgaesic effect of these interventions

    and (2) the feasibility of a larger clinical

    trial for adults diagnosed with acute

    rotator cuff tendinopathy (<12 weeks).
