Sonoelastography of the Supraspinatus Tendon

Brief description of study

This study aims a determine the responsiveness of sonoelastography in the tendinopathy-affected supraspinatus tendon.

Detailed Study Description

The trial will include 20 patients diagnosed with supraspinatus tendinopathy from one orthopaedic shoulder clinic in Denmark.

The intervention will consist of an exercise program including lowload exercises with elastics and dumbbells, targeting the rotator cuff in a 12 weeks home-exercise program with two control visits at a physiotherapy department at the hospitals.

Tissue elasticity (measured by sonoelastography) is used as the primary outcome and is measured 12 weeks post baseline
