Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare the shoulder rotator strength (SRS) and handgrip strength (HS) in affected side with that in unaffected side in patients with unilateral subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS), and to evaluate the relationship of SRS with duration of symptoms, handgrip strength, pain, disability, quality of life (QOL), and emotional status.
