Abstract

Shoulder pain is one of the most common impairments seen in physical therapy practice and it is usually caused by chronic degeneration or an acute injury. In this case, the patient suffered from pain following an acute injury sustained due to chronic overuse and weakness of the rotator cuff musculature causing an impingement within the subacromial space. Despite his physical impairments, this patient was also limited by psychosocial factors. The objective of this case is to investigate the impact of patient neuroscience education paired with manual therapy and exercise in order to treat shoulder pain and restore function.
