The conclusion from the research:
"KT produced an immediate improvement in pain intensity during movement and in the measure of nocturnal pain. However, no longer term effects of KT existed after one week. No significant effect of KT on shoulder active ROM was discovered. KT can be prescribed for patients with SIS especially when pain relief is the short-term goal of the treatment. More clinical research is needed to investigate the effect of KT on scapular and shoulder kinematics and on disability of the arm and shoulder."
