random sample technique

Sampling Methods

Subjects was randomly allocated into two groups i.e. group A and group B.

Group A


Group B:


All patients was examined beforehand and afterward the treatment and then evaluate the findings. Pain intensity were be measured by Visual Analog Scale and Physical Function outcomes was measured by MASES (The .Modified .American .shoulder and .elbow .surgery (MASES) score.


Group A: The result shows that the mean pain score of VAS before treatment 5.88 1.130, but after treatment VAS score were decreased and intensity of pain was 1.80 1.041. P-value 0.006. Frequency of pain score is mentioned in Table 3.

Group B

it has been observed that mean pain score of VAS before treatment was 6.561.446 and after treatment it was decreased and new value 2.721.208. P-value=0.006. Table 03 present group B values.


This study supported the taping as a useful technique for relieving pain and improving strength in subject with supraspinatus tendonitis. It also revealed that taping is more effective in reducing pain in comparison with exercise therapy. This evidence will promote a more efficient treatment option for the management of supraspinatus tendonitis.
