Comparative Study Between the Effect of Myofascial Release Using M2T Blade and Kinesiotape on Recreational Badminton Shoulder Pain Subjects: A Randomised Clinical Trial
By International Journal of Medical Research & Health Sciences | 01 May 2017
Type:Randomized Clinical trial
Sample Size:30


Shoulder pain is one of the most common conditions seen in recreational badminton players. It is caused due to repeated movements at the shoulder joint which further limits the range of motion and hence hampers the activities of daily living. M2T helps to release the myofascial tightness which causes the pain. Kinesiotape also helps in increasing the range of motion.

Patients and Methods

Thirty recreational shoulder pain subjects were assessed and treated between the age group of 18-30 years at the KLE University's Indoor Stadium, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Belagavi, Karnataka, India.


The recreational shoulder pain subjects were divided into Group "A" and Group "B" by Randomized clinical trial. Outcome measures used were the visual analogue scale (VAS) for pain and the Disability of Arm, Hand, and Shoulder (DASH). VAS and DASH were assessed pre-treatment and post-treatment.


Inter-group comparison for both the groups had differences but showed no statistical significance. Hence based on results it can be concluded that both the treatment techniques are effective in reducing pain and increasing ability at the shoulder joint.
