RUBIO-OYARZUN, D. et al. Therapy of judgment of laterality and imagenery of movement and exercises of selective muscular activation glenohumeral in subjects with massive rupture of the rotating sleeve: case series. Rev. Soc. Esp. Dolor [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.4, pp.197-206. ISSN 1134-8046.


Massive tear of the rotator cuff (DMMR) is a degenerative clinical condition, which corresponds to a 5 cm rupture, or one that compromises two or more tendons of the rotator cuff (MR), generating loss of functionality and disabling pain.


To describe changes in pain and shoulder function following a 6-week program of lateral-imaging and motion imaging therapy and selective glenohumeral activation exercises in subjects with massive rotator cuff tears.


This study is a descriptive research and design of a series of cases, with a sample of 50 participants with diagnosis of rotator cuff mastication. Patients underwent a glenohumeral selective exercise program plus laterality and motion imaging therapy for 6 weeks. The variables of function, pain, abduction ROM and shoulder flexion were measured at sixth week and sixth month of evolution.


There were significant differences in pain intensity, shoulder function, AROM flexion and shoulder abduction AROM, after the intervention (p > 0.05). Statistically significant differences were found for all outcome measures between the intervention and the sixth follow-up month (p < 0.05). Only the pain of the statistically significant differences between the sixth week and the sixth month of follow-up (p = 0.01).


The application of laterality trial therapy and motion imaging added to a program of selective exercises stabilizadores glenohumerales during 6 weeks, could improve shoulder function, decrease pain and increase AROM flexion and shoulder abduction in patients with massive rupture of the rotator cuff.
