Abstract: Systematically reviews the contextual factors and prescription parameters of exercise programs for rotator cuff tendinopathy as reported in 14 studies, which suggested that these programs are widely applicable and can be successfully designed by PTs with varying experience. Notes that exercise completion at home or in the clinic does not seem to make a difference, nor does pain production vs. avoidance. Remarks that inclusion of some level of resistance does seem to matter, but that the optimal level and number of repetitions is unclear, although there are suggestions that 3 sets of exercise are better than 1 or 2.
