for the management of unilateral shoulder impingement syndrome . Context Subacromial shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS) can cause shoulder problems and corticosteroid injections and physical therapy (exercise and manual therapy) are among the most common treatments. This randomised controlled trial (RCT) compares these treatments in adults with SIS.

Intervention Graded exercise therapy (GET). GET aims to increase the patient’s ability to undertake physical (...) activity by preventing/reversing the physical deconditioning and exercise intolerance related to prolonged (relative) inactivity. GET includes the establishment of a baseline of achievable patient-specific exercise or physical activity, followed by increments in the duration of physical activity. The overall aim is to help the patient gradually increase physical activity, and become more independent in their everyday life. GET differs from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) by not directly targeting
