Does Clinical Pilates constitute a reliable rehabilitation method in “Rotator Cuff Related Shoulder Pain” (RCRSP)?

The shoulder region constitutes one of the most complex joints of the human body suffering from a variety of pathologies mostly in its tendon elements [1]. In naming this phenomenon the dominant term is “Rotator Cuff Related Shoulder Pain” (RCRSP), which constitutes “umbrella definition” that includes a plethora of pathologies such as impingement syndrome (painful subacromial syndrome), rotator cuff tendonitis and tendosynovitis and tendon ruptures, all accompanied with tendon stiffness, oedema development, pain and increase in tendon frailty. [2-4]. Many interventions have been used in the treatment process, both chemical (anti-inflammatory drugs, cortisone, hyaluronic acid, Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP) [05, 06] and surgical (acromioplasty) [10], and also physical therapy [07-13].
